I guess I would recommend Postfix because it is what I know :-)

I have found that for some of the things I wanted to do, the
documentation for Postfix was better.

I don't think that it will change.  Like many other things, the default
MTA is a matter of opinion and lots of people like Exim.  Personally,
I'd like to see the default change, but I don't think it makes that much
of a difference in the long run as you can always change it.
