What will be the UI after "we eliminate the flaw that started this
thread"?  Right now, Emacs asks the user whether she wants to
configure smtp:

   (insert "Emacs has not been set up for sending mail.\n
  Type `y' to configure and use Emacs as a mail client,
  or `n' to use your system's default mailer.\n
  To change your decision later, customize `send-mail-function'.\n")

This is a very confusing request, and the way it asks 2 or even 3
questions in 2 sentences cannot possibly be TRT.  What do you propose
as the alternative?
