It needed to be done a long time ago, to be honest. EM surprises are not of a pleasant kind.
Brainstorming session, can we do it?

Bob Page, Aquinas protocol, Morgan Everett, Illuminati, orange, MJ12, UNATCO, Walton Simons, NSF, Versalife, Renaissance->Dark ages, Lucius DeBeers, Elizabeth DuClare, Stanton Dowd, Illuminati, Gary Savage, Megan Reed, Patient X, Augmentations R&D, Janus, Echelon, AI, Tai Yong, Belltower (to be updated)

Also the timeline (http://deusex.wikia.com/wiki/Timeline). Note that many pre HR lore events aren't mentioned.

Questions with fake answers:
Why HRs world is more technologically advanced than that of DX?
Magic. Also Renaissance.

What about Tyrants? No more boss fights, right?

What was the cause of a plunge Renaissance->Dark ages?

Low key cyberpunk, not sci-fi.
There's a plenty of crazy things as it is, no need to make up new entities.
Mass surveillance should be at the center of it. It's just one more thing DX got dead on.
Bob Page wants to control the world (to be a god, really). You can't do that just by using your 3 or 4 augmented super soldiers as enforcers, no matter how good they are (not that good at all, as it turned out). Where are the strings??
