It clearly should give +x to diplomacy or +x to bluff as well, so that people will assume you've got all the equipment you could possibly need, since you've your towel, and will lend you whatever you may have lost or forgotten along your journey.

A skill bonus's what?
[spoiler]Masculine men like masculine things. Masculine men are masculine. Therefore, liking masculine men is masculine.

I dare anyone to find a hole in that logic.

Just keep the Keen enchantment off the towel, since I might actually have to use it. However, if you stretch it properly, you might have an argument for shooting soap bars with it and soap on the floor is always good...

Poor man's 'Grease'?

This item should come along with another item, a tome of +x to all knowledges.  It should be yellow colored with nice, friendly letters on the front reading 'Don't Panic'.

I simply must say that I do own a towel with the text "Don't Panic". It is however white with blue letters.

While on the topic though, is it possible to load it with some castings of "Sustain" or something else that keeps you full up. I remember quite clearly that one of the great uses of your towel is to dip in nourishment-solutions so you can keep going. Perhaps even "Darkness" since another use was using it if you simply did not "want to see"..

But are they "big, friendly letters"?  And yellowness is rather a misrememberance on my part anyhow!

I guess the towel should do as many of the following as possible:

Protection from Cold
Provides shelter for rest, provided your at the beach with heady sea vapours, or in the desert at night
Can be used to sail
Melee weapon when wet
Protection from noxious fumes, gaze attacks, and some form of concealment when worn on your head
Distress signal
Removing liquids from yourself, if it still seems to be clean enough
Bonus to Bluff or Diplo such that others will be willing to lend/give you any number of practical items (of essentially any value) because you are clearly a man to be reckoned with, as you've battled your way across the land facing liches and dragons and constructs and all other manners of beastie against all odds, and you still have your towel.

use-activated protection from cold = 2000 gp
+10 to diplomacy checks = 10000 gp
+10 to bluff checks = 10000 gp
use activated weapon shift = 2000 gp
no space limitation = x2

=48000 gp.
