I would like to see an information message showing the remaining time until the alarm wakes me up if the alarm is activated.

I use this quite often with the N9 when going to sleep. For repeating alarms I switch it off and on again to get the remaining time. At night I'm too lazy to do the calculation my self :-)

I second this suggestion!

Also, it would be neat to have the alarms "move around", as in the N9, i.e. next set alarm moves to top, altogether disabled alarms show up underneath, after the active ones. It's enough for me, if they only move around on the cover (where "the next three alarms" are viewable).
This would give me an easy way to check that I've correctly activated e.g. tomorrows wakeup alarm.

(This was also the way I could check whether I had turned off, or just snoozed, an alarm on the N9, as that alarm either had been moved down, or still was up top.)

Also: If three timers are set, but one (or more; up to three) alarm is to go off before the timer, that alarm would preferably be visible on the topmost row (and not depending on when they were started).

This is needed!

I agree, this is a good thing to have when setting alarms. Also, the clock-cover should show the time and date and remaining time of maybe next two alarms, instead of just lising the times of all active alarms. The date information is crucial to have cause the times seems to be sorted with the smallest first even if it is not the nearest alarm (maybe I should file a bug-report of this cover-display behaviour).

They should simply mimic the alarm behaviour of the N9(50) clock. I find Sailfish app to be counterintuitive.

remaining time also helps catch am/pm errors that might prove disastrous.
