I don't really agree with this.  Many third-party modules still aren't
thread-safe (and probably quite a few shipped in httpd too e.g. 
mod_example!).  Making worker the default won't solve that, it'll just
create a stream of "I upgraded to 2.2 and now everything segfaults" bug
reports and people will stick with 1.3/2.0. 

2.2 can be a compelling upgrade without making worker the default.
