This two simple arguments should be enought to consider maildir as
default for evolution

I don't know about default, but it should certainly be supported. I
never understood why it was dropped in the first place.

It isn't dropped, it works fine (apart from specific bugs).

Yes, I see it now. I hadn't expected it to be under the Server drop-down
when creating an account. Also, it appears to be impossible to set up a
POP account using Maildir local storage, which is probably what a lot of
people want (of course one could do it using Fetchmail, but that's
hardly user-friendly)

IMHO the setup wizard should separate two issues: how the mail is
fetched, and how it is stored locally (if at all). Mixing both things in
the same menu limits the possibilities and is confusing to the user.
