Or, one can say as I do, "unless you know what you're doing and why, stick
with the defaults."

I would much rather skip all discussion of key lengths and have people
just use the defaults unless they know for a fact the defaults are
insufficient for their purposes.  Then move on to, as you say, more
important considerations.
