Man, I am going to be out of the country for the whole week, and by the time I will be back, all the analysis, all the jokes, and all the sweet, cheap respect will be gone :(

Are you going to a country that doesn't have Dominion?

Nobody has speculated about the treasure village yet? The only way I can see this working is as a Treasure-Duration, where it gives you (say) +1 action at the start of your next turn. The direct comparison would be to Fishing Village, which is also a duration providing money and actions. IIRC Fishing Village once gave +2 actions on the next turn and that was reduced to +1 actions, but the treasure village can't give actions this turn, so hey maybe it gives +2 actions the next turn to net about the same amount. If its treasure value is $2, then historical evidence suggests that it'd be priced $5 or higher (since strictly-better-than-Silvers tend to get priced at that level). My guess is maybe $3 for $1-this-turn-plus-2-actions-next-turn, or $5 for $2-this-turn-plus-1-action-next-turn. The former is more promoting of engines, while the latter is more promoting of terminal-heavy money strategies. I wouldn't be surprised if the actual card is more distinct from Fishing Village.

How about an action-treasure:  if you play this during the action phase, +2 actions, +1 card.  If you play this during the treasure phase ($2).  Cost $4.

I hope it's no duration village.
Something along the lines of:

$4 Lost City
1$
+1 action
Go back to the action phase.

That means it can't be drawn dead and allows some Black-market-like shenanigans with draw-to-X.

Or even cooler, to allow abusing Mandarin/Watchtower.
$4 Lost City
1$
+1 action
----
While this is in play, when you buy a card, go back to your action phase.

Here's an old quotation to support my Treasure-Duration hypothesis:
If it didn't conflict with the Seaside rulebook and I was doing a new set with duration cards, I would for sure consider doing a treasure-duration. I don't think it would be too confusing.

How about an action-treasure:  if you play this during the action phase, +2 actions, +1 card.  If you play this during the treasure phase ($2).  Cost $4.
Action-treasure was ruled out in past statements. Could have changed I guess, but the reasoning against it is solid.
No, I can't do action-treasure because it would be too confusing.

Something along the lines of:

$4 Lost City
1$
+1 action
Go back to the action phase.

That means it can't be drawn dead and allows some Black-market-like shenanigans with draw-to-X.
Wouldn't it be pretty confusing to flip back and forth between the action and buy phases? It's true that Black Market does something similar already, but it also happens to be pretty confusing. I kinda doubt we'd see such a mechanic make it into a main set.

Being the 9th expansion, this is obviously aimed at experienced players, and cards are bound to get more complicated.
I don't think this would be more confusing then TR-feast-as-BoM

My guess is that the card you can play when it isn't your turn is the treasure village card. It could be something which gives you both actions and coins on your next turn.

I think the card you can play when it isn't your turn is a reaction, to make sure you have a fixed time/reason to play it.

Donald has previously said that an Action-Treasure would be too confusing.
An Action-Treasure that you play on someone else's turn is mind-melting.
