Well, Lateran V was a huge missed opportunity...
It was like a very epic, yet hugely "anti-climatic" council... :o

I must say that your list is about dead-on with mine.  The Council of Trent, in my opinion, was the most important council in Church history due to the time it was held - a time that the Church could have been brought to her knees with a raging storm of heresy caused by the Protestant Revolt.  The Great Council of Trent was the answer to the so-called Protestant "Reformation," the Counter-Reformation.

In these modern times, when the Church truly has been brought to her knees by the onslaught of a more vicious heresy, modernism, we are in need of another re-defining council as Trent was.  A pseudo-"Pastoral" council let the wolves in, we need a true DOGMATIC Council to clear up the confusion - or otherwise a very strong reformist Pope who could issue powerful ex cathedra edicts against the errors of our times caused by the "spirit of Vatican II."
