Thank you for pointing out that `org-link-mailto-program' should not be recommended in FAQ any more.

I prepared an alternative patch that recommends to customize Emacs variables at first. I hope, an example is safer now, however I can not test it on MacOS. Could you, please, review the patch, since I may miss something important from your point of view?

I am unsure if MailMate is acceptable since it is a proprietary application. Org is a part of *GNU* Emacs, so it may be better to mention some free mail user agent.

It seems, `org-link-set-parameters' is missed.

I am sorry, I missed that you suggested to customize the `org-link-parameters' variable, so function call is not necessary here.
