I'm all in favor having any and all of those as options.
For the people who want to run a mail server, they absolutely should.
But those already have to significantly customize their OS already.
Installing a MTA of their choice as part of that is no big deal,
and probably entirely expected by those who really want to run a mail

But I stand by: The default: none of the above.
