There are a couple of aspects that would benefit from community discussion:

1) Selection of all elements via language dependent shortcut (e.g. ctrl+A)

normal list shortcuts are disabled, as the lists are intended to interact with the keyboard commands of the sketcher.

The checkbox in the constraints is specific to visibility, not selection. This has to be taken into account.

However, it may be possible to add a button to select all items. Maybe a context menu entry. Here I think UI experts, which I am not, could have interesting ideas/alternatives.

2)If by "constraints listbox" the context menu of the constraints is intended, it is very easy to add. Again, maybe UI experts come with a better usability solution.

It would not be the first time I propose a UI and people come with great enriching ideas. I have learnt to leverage the knowledge of the community in this cases. I think it is important it gets discussed.
