Have a default setup if you have a hdmi to TV connection & audio or spdif etc have standard profiles which work out of the box.
Have a wizard to guide you thru the setup of your setup.
Have an app store where you see all the addon etcs rather then guess what they are meant to do. Have tags which relate correctly.
Have a preview of what each setting in layout does...and be able to revert it.
Dont link any sort of social media to xbmc its a media center not a social center!!! You have a phone, tablet and laptop for that!
Well, not everyone who can submit to our repo chooses to, and some add-ons aren't allowed (IceFilms, 1Channel, etc, obviously).
As for the other stuff, we're getting there. Check out nightly builds (wiki) and you'll see a lot of this is already in. Settings now all have descriptions, and in the future we can probably expand that to "setting content" and other areas. Settings can now be reverted to a default state for the first time in XBMC's history (without having to delete everything). Default audio is a lot more standard and out-of-the-box for the majority of setups out there. Screen shots and even video trailers for add-ons have been discussed to help people preview add-ons before downloading them.
And yes, I think it's safe to say that we're not interested in adding integrated facebook to XBMC :D
