"most" will get better with every report as to where it does not work
right now.

Right, i myself learned it just recently.. i'm however not sure were i
read about it :). The thing is just that delete-selection-mode seems to
have nothing to do with default values at minibuffer prompts.
Being able to edit the default value is useful for everyone not just
people that use delete-selection-mode. M-n is already there. So maybe M-n
should be in the tutoraial and some words in the elisp manual telling
developers to provide a default value for every minibuffer prompt because
of M-n ?
