It would help if -
1. This would be the default behavior of \transpose (this will save many
questions in the future)

I don't think this will happen; in many cases the current behavior of \transpose is the desired one. From a music theory standpoint, it's the correct one.

Agree completely! As a violin player, I often get very confused if the editor
has made an enharmonic replacement of some note just to reduce the number
of accidentals, both since it makes it harder to understand the melody and harder to find a natural fingering. I guess the sitiuation may be different
if you play woodwind instruments, for example.
I think it's just as confusing for a woodwind player. Let's see if we get opinions from the other members of the orchestra.
