Can you be more specific in how this breaks existing setups?

It doesn't break anything for upgraded systems. But old users doing fresh
installs, and who wish to use virtual desktops, would need to figure out how
and where to increase the number of virtuel desktops in systemsettings.

I'm afraid that'd be a challenge and "turn-off" even for many long-time users.
90% of users or so, never change any darn default setting. So the defaults
need to be good.

Many on IRC voiced the oppinion that the activity manager
shouldn't be part of the default plasma - including me.

Please give the reasons for those of us who were not party to the IRC

Many of the reasons were already mentioned in this thread.

Activities are "confusing", advanced stuff, and their impact on Plasma
crashiness is still a bit questionable.

But the way I read this thread, most people favour a default setup where the
Activity Manager stays in the panel, but the default number of desktops is
increased above just one.
