The question was: would it be okay to change the default value of
send-mail-function to mailclient-send-it, for Windows only?

I'm okay with changing the default to mailclient-send-it on all
platforms ;-)

I cannot speak for Posix platforms nowadays, but I do know that almost
every Windows box out there has its mail client set up, so it is a
sure bet to rely on that for Windows.  By contrast, many (if not most)
Windows users would not know how to set up SMTP, even if they are
sophisticated enough to use Emacs.

So I think, for Emacs 24.1 at least, having mailclient-send-it as the
default on Windows would be a good solution, until we figure out how
to satisfy all the different needs in this matter.
