In order to help increasing the "user-friendliness" couldn't we do something similar to what viper-mode does? I.e. provide different levels of "Emacs-ness".

The lowest level (default?) could enable features that are common among other editors/IDEs, e.g. CUA. Increasing levels could "unlock" more and more "Emacs-ness" up to the point of where you get what everybody would consider the "true" Emacs in all its glory.

I believe that Cream, a Vim clone with a self-proclaimed "modern configuration" (http://cream.sourceforge.net/home.html), does something similar.

Imho, this could help ease new users into the Emacs world, without alienating the existing longtime users.
