All those seems like good ideas to me.

I also recognise that this would be a far more major overhaul than is
intended at present and it can make sense to make major changes one step
at a time. Nevertheless, there is (eventually) more that Thunderbird
could do to welcome non-expert users.

Exactly so (especially so in the context of my other comments in this
thread about not always needing an email account at all). :-)

(And to be clear I like the proposed changes too. It's just that it
seems to me that there is yet more needed to bring TB up to date with
user expectations of ostensible simplicity with capability available and
revealed as needed).
