You can ignore me, too, but you might miss out on me doing something stupid that you can laugh at. I still fall into the camp of those that say pick the "best" option (at present the most popular is Xfce, so go with that) for the default and for newbies, and everyone else can install and use what they prefer (it is really easy). If we want to be user friendly to the rest of us, I picked KDE, LXDE, and for something like MiniMenu. That is based purely on personal preference, although I would like a tiling window manager as well. The real best options for the community would be to go with what it's most popular. Unfortunately (for me) that includes GNOME. Regardless of what is shipped I will probably use either something lightweight or something that has all my toys (KDE) if it doesn't burn through the battery.
