Agreed.  I have another: portability.

I never develop on a live site.  I always setup on a test server, behind a 
firewall/NAT/intranet/whatever, then copy the whole shebang over to the live 
server at once.  Currently, all you have to do for that is flush the cache 
and update settings.php.  Now we're talking about adding a rename-a-path 
step.  As Khalid said, that can be problematic.  

I don't see anything wrong with /default/.  Most installs, I suspect, are 
single-site.  Let's not make things too complicated for single-install users 
unnecessarily.  /sites/all doesn't require removing /sites/default, which is 
still very useful.

"If nature has made any one thing less susceptible than all others of 
exclusive property, it is the action of the thinking power called an idea, 
which an individual may exclusively possess as long as he keeps it to 
himself; but the moment it is divulged, it forces itself into the possession 
of every one, and the receiver cannot dispossess himself of it."  -- Thomas
