Indeed, they are good examples. For me, the thing is : why these examples ?
To give examples doesn't mean not to justify them.

A justification could be the need of the users, if after a study it appears
that the color Brush the most relevant to provide by default is a Pepper, I
would understand. Unfortunately, I don't think so.
I could also totally understand if someone justifies it by saying "it's for
historical reason, the Pepper is a symbol for Gimp".

Moreover I think I'm not mistaken if I say that a large set of casual users
keep using Gimp with the default brush set and don't add custom ones. My
opinion would be that the more useful brushes they have, the more they will
feel creative. This is why I think Gimp should be shipped with a large set
of useful brushes.
