All you requisite weight depend on the actual operation environment. Very 
difficult to give a "general" weight.

For example:

>  Desktop Client for Multiple OS

If you development spans across multiple OSes it is "critical", othewise 
"little impact" or "nice to have".

>  Devlopment API

Do you plan to extend it? In which way? If you don't it's not very 
important, if you need to integrate it with many other tools may be 

>  Multiple developers to check out same file

Again, this depends on your development. C files? They can easily merged. 
Flash? I don't think so.

>  Promotion Model: Example: Bat - Dev - QA - Prod

With any tool you can usually build a promotion model. In CVSNT you can do 
it moving tags, other products may have ad-hoc features.

>  Integration with Visual Studio .NET 2003 & 2005

Again, it weight depends on how much of your development is made with VS. 
Although most VCS tools can be integrated via SCC providers. The support 
depends on the provider.

>  Integration with Rational Web Developer

See above.

>  Code label/tagging support

That's a must for any VCS, or it is pretty useless.

>  Branching
>  Merging

Again, a feature every good VCS offer. The real issue is how easy it to 
perfom them. Much depends on your branch/merge strategy, however.

>  Reporting Capabilities

What kind of reporting? It's a very wide area.

>  Performance over WAN/VPN

Again, a critical issue if you really need it.
