there are just a few defaults i think are better for new users,
despite discoverability.

no indentation is one such.

1 changes org files less [better for e.g. merging]

2 requires less filling maintenance [for the body text; bastien's
change works here]

3 requires less adjustment when plain-text changes are made

4 is parseable by third party code that has whitespace line prefixes
in derived formats


another default i'd change is sub-superscript, which has littered
variable_[name as a subscript] all over the web -- even when highly
experienced org users on this mailing list export to html.  :)
