I'm going to vote no on the default collections. There are too many varied uses of Elgg to do this. It would be easy enough to make a plugin that allows admins to specify these, if need be.
The UI for adding to collections definitely needs improvement. Facebook and G+ are the only networks that do a decent job at this, that I know of.
