   1) Improve the default theme: Maybe set a default dark theme to make
   emacs feel more modern. Experienced users usually already have a custom
   theme, so they won't be affected. There is actually some statistics
   about downloades themes here:

This would be an utterly disastrous change.  As an experienced user, I
do not have a custom theme, and prefer to use the defaults of Emacs.

   4) Enable display-line-numbers-mode by default. Almost all editors
   around have line numbers by default why we hide them?

Just no.  Just because everyone does it, doesn't mean that it is a
good default.  In the majority of cases, there is no need to see the
line number -- for example, like when writting an email.

   5) Enable winmove and mouse-wheel-mode by default.

What is winmove?  

   I think all these are very conservative changes (specially considering
   that we have 2-3 years before enabling them)

They are absolutley not conservative changes.
