It has been mentioned several times in the past that there shall be
better (or other) Tramp defaults. But I haven't seen proposals.

For sure I'm biased, but I believe the current Tramp defaults are suited
for the majority of users. Could people pls tell me where I'm wrong with
this? What other Tramp defaults are better?

And promised, I'm willing to accept proper changes.

Hard to do. Remote file access is different for everybody, because
everybody uses another remote host. I'm lacking on ideas what such a
guided tour for remote access shall show (except the simple
recommendation "write /ssh:user@host:/path/to/file instead of /path/to/file").

Proposals welcome!
