I dream of Justice and Basement Jaxx as well, although the belt sander would have to be a DJ set.
As for your "Decent Possibilities," I think Major Lazer is the only real possibility, but they are more of a tent act. The rest of them all seem like Bigfoot material rather than tent material.
Your "Better Suited for the Tent" however has a couple I could see doing the late set, 2ManyDJs and Bloody Beetroots.
Regarding the high energy rock or metal, I've been guessing this would happen for the last few years, and it never has (depending on how you define certain bands). I'm not sure it will ever happen. So I guess we disagree quiet a bit, but it's nice to have another thread on a more specific topic.
I'd add Flying Lotus and Bassnectar to the list of late night possibilities, even though each have been discussed in the past.

Yeah I forgot about bassnectar but he'd be sweet too. And fuck yah Dan Deacon, though I'd rather him do his solo thing in the middle of the crowd, which makes better sense for during the day. I wouldn't complain if the Ensemble played a late set though.

Dan Deacon kind of needs to do his thing in the dark. Plus getting everyone that physically riled up wouldn't be smart when it's still 80+ degrees outside. The size and layout of the dance tent (someone please tell me we're renaming it this year) would be perfect.
STS9 would be a cool late show, too. And I support Bassnectar, but Flying Lotus is terribly boring.
I've been thinking it would be awesome to have some ambient or generally quieter stuff on something like the Yeti Stage for another late night option. Bring in Eluvium, Saxon Shore, or mum. Pipe-dream, but this is a wishlist.
