I'm not convinced.  I made end-of-defun move to the newline between defuns,
usually, because there are situations where it is useful to end up there.
One of them is in C-M-h (mark-defun), but it's not that alone.

I think these reasons apply to all languages, especially when there's
a blank line between the defuns.

If you want to end up at the closing delimiter, you can use C-M-a C-M-f.
