Yes, you're living on borrowed time

>Replace water pump?

It makes sense doing this while you're doing the T belt

>Fuel and air filters?


>replace Hydraulic fluid?

Yes - failure to do so every two years or so causes corrosion of the
callipers/cylinders and also can cause soggy brakes if they get hot.

what else?

Oil filter, oil and plugs obviously.
Lube the sunroof, door handles.
Check all the rubber bits - CV, steering gear and ball joint boots,
suspension bushings etc.
Replace cam cover gasket (if cork).
Check rubber pipes for leaks - particularly the breather hose coming out of
the cam cover and associated items .
Check fluid levels in diffs.
