These are a good start. I assume (1) means (isFullscreen ->  
doFullFloat), and (3) means sticking avoidStruts/manageDocks in the  
core. To those, I would add smartBorders, modMask = mod4Mask,  
something to address  
http://www.reddit.com/r/xmonad/comments/aaexm/gnome_do_in_xmonad/c0glyav (not  
sure if there's even anything in contrib right now for this), and  
perhaps switching the default layouts to one of the hinted ones (can't  
count how many people complain about urxvt's, emacs' and vim's  
misbehavior in #xmonad). I think gwern's suggestion to have some kind  
of welcome-message for first-time users should also be considered part  
of the proposal.

2 cents, etc. etc.
