I realize I'm asking for something I can't implement myself, but: I'd
prefer a local-only system by default and have postfix available (at
install time?) as a package.

This makes upgrades a bit easier, since it decouples the MTA from the
system, and it slightly reduces the amount of documentation that might, in
theory, get written.

Also, if Sendmail X turns out to be the cat's pajamas, or someone mails
this list again with the subject "Replacing Postfix with Sendmail in the
base system", for instance, there will be a mechanism to handle that.
