Since calls can be declined and silenced by swiping, it would be super if the caller name could be announced when a call is incoming. We would not need to take the phone from pocket if the call does not need to be answered.

This is a feature I used on my N8, and I really miss it on the Jolla. It's really useful when traveling by bike (like I do a lot), as it's sometimes a bit of a hassle just to check who's calling.

only as option please, and possibly for chosen group of contacts

Yes, obviously it should be just an option. A possible workaround could be the option to assign individual ringtones to persons and/ or groups (shortly discussed in https://together.jolla.com/question/5825/ringtone-per-contact/)
