Equipment for wildlife - final check list - please!

Hi all,
Thanks to your great replies I have managed to put the following items in my cart. Just before I spend all this money I would appreciate a final check and advice about the following: (keep in mind it is mainly for wildlife filmmaking)
1. Canon XL 2+ its x20 standard zoom lens.
2. Canon 70-200 2.8 -do I need the IS or can I do without it and save 500$ ?
3. Canon EF adaptor to use with my various Canon lenses such as 300 2.8, 400 5.6, 100 macro 2.8.
4. Canon ZR-1000 remote control
5. 2 extra BP-945 Lithium Ion Battery Packs - is it a good choice?
6. I have very nice Gitzo tripod legs so I only need the tripod head-
7. Bogen/Manfrotto 516 Fluid Head (for up to 22 lbs) is a good choice?
8. Lowepro Road Runner, mini AW, Rolling Backpack for carrying the camera and the lenses.

I will wait with the sound equipment till I get to know things a bit better.

Any comment/suggestion regarding this list would be greatly appreciated.
