There are really two orthogonal things being discussed here: One question is
whether the default MTA should be a full or proper implementation versus a
tiny and limited implementation (or -- the latest idea -- none at all). The
other is whether, if the full implementation is chosen, it should be Exim or
Postfix. It might lead this argument to a clearer conclusion if those two
issues are treated separately.
