Why have prereleases then, if it's "too late" for feedback from users
who are not willing to bleed on the edge, and who don't necessarily
read emacs-devel with their morning coffee?

You should also consider that for this particular default, positive
responses will come quickly from those who use long lines a lot, while
they are unlikely to notice much aggravation in environments where
visual motion is likely to be inappropriate, because those environment
typically strongly discourage long lines anyway.  Thus the complaints
are likely to be relatively late and few---and for that very reason
should be given more weight than the positive responses.
