I personally agree that headline-data makes more sense as a default
given the feedback we received a few weeks ago; as you noticed though
there might be a few loose ends to tie up before making the switch:

- As you said, RET after a headline indents, but the common case for
  hitting RET after a headline is probably to write text, since IME
  headline drawers are always inserted with dedicated commands; thus RET
  should not indent after a header.

- RET after a headline drawer's :END: also indents.

- RET in a list item does not indent; it's not obvious that it should,
  but FWIW (1) RET indents when org-adapt-indentation is t (2) that
  would be my preference.

Also, Greg Minshall (CC'ed) helpfully laid out how org-adapt-indentation
and electric-indent-mode play together in one neat table:


I didn't take the time to properly review his findings, but there might
be more inconsistencies lurking in there.

Finally, not a big problem if headline-data becomes the default, but:
the :safe predicate is still booleanp.  Patch attached:

Glad things fell back in place somehow.  The only explanation I can
conjure for weird/transient/irreproducible behaviour is directory-local
settings, e.g. org-mode.git's .dir-locals.el sets org-adapt-indentation
to nil… but there might have been something else at work in your case 🤷
