If the End receives some upgrades, it's reasonable that the Respawn Anchor (from 1.16) could be given functionality in this dimension too for easier survival. But what about an exit anchor? Let me explain:
With the End, the player has no safe way to return to the Overworld until they've defeated the Ender Dragon, and that is the Exit Portal. However, there's only one, and the outer islands are spread very far out from it. The Exit Anchor could solve this problem. I'm not going to use this post to decide what it looks like or how it’s crafted, just its functionality.
Much like the Nether's Respawn Anchor, the Exit Anchor will require fuel to stay active after each use. However, they will behave like the main Exit Portal in that they don't work when the Ender Dragon is present. This last detail could be vetoed if the Dragon fight is further revised for the End update (though I don't see why it would need further change). Either way, there should be an easier way to travel between these two dimensions than the one that is currently ingame.
