In a way, I already do ;-)  See my section at gedasymbols.org.
Of course, the actual choice of components was guided by the 
kind of projects I do. And I did not strive for completeness
beyond what I actually need.

No size fits all. That does not preclude improvement over the current

Size wouldn't be an issue, anyway. In fact, I believe, the default libs
should be cut down to essentials -- Few instances, but excellent quality,
ready to use. Given the availability of gedasymbols.org, there is no point
to have several GND symbols and three kinds of BC247. Such a lib can act 
as a starting point for first projects and for a localized set of libs.
