Some answers for you, based on my experience with your site:
1. How would you want percent complete handled? Would you need to track the percent complete of each "phase" on that line?
— I personally find adding "% done" a waste of time. It's a very rough guess at best. Better to discuss progress in team meetings (I suspect most organisations will do). Be interesting to look at your usage stats and see if this is a feature you could kill off...
2) How would resources be assigned? Does each "phase" need to be able to be assigned to different resources or does every phase get the same resource?
— I think default behaviour is that all phases get same resources, then are editable individually.
3) Dependencies could be a bit tricky as well.
— To implement a first version of this could you not treat the phases of a task the same as a whole task, for dependencies? i.e. You can link dependencies mid way through a task. Seems like a compromise users would be OK with given the addition of this functionality.
Not trying to tell you how to suck eggs here, so I hope it's ok that I've said this, but I feel this really would be a key differentiator for you. I spent a couple of months looking a tool like yours to help me plan projects effectively. Yours was the only one that wasn't massively over complex or expect me to estimate hours. The ability to "split tasks" over days is the only thing I've really missed from your competitors (Omni plan, etc).

-1 : for me its too granular. Stick to what your good at team Gantt; good simple project planning.
