Elevated fingerboard - Personally it didn't mess me up at all with locating the 12th fret and it did give some minimal benefit in accessing the upper registers. There are some players who swear by them and wouldn't buy a guitar without it (Bradford Werner comes to mind). I could live with or without it, but if the additional cost was minimal I'd definitely go for it. Many luthiers now include it as standard at no additional cost.
Fret markers - A highly personal matter. The last two guitars I've owned had no fret markers, and I think it has helped me to navigate the fingerboard without relying on them. If I were to get a guitar with a fretmarker, one at the 7th fret would be the most I'd go if I wanted that extra security.
In having a guitar built for you, you should also look into nut width, string spacing, scale length, action height, tuning machines, neck profile, neck thickness, type of fret wire, 12 vs 6 hole tie block, sound port, etc. Of course this depends largely on the flexibility of the luthier. But if you're going to have a guitar custom made, might as well get it really fine tuned to your liking.
