I don't strongly oppose a change of default, but wouldn't it be better to 
improve the scrolling implementation to make the acceleration more subtle, 
rather than turn it off entirely?

I'd expect most smartphone users to be familiar with accelerated scrolling, 
since it's a common feature in mobile browsers and and other applications.  And 
I'm a bit wary about requiring users to do complex adjustments to their mouse 

IOW, I agree good defaults would be nice, but I'm not sure "off" is one.
