That's exactly what Ubuntu developers are for, I guess. Making Linux
accessible and easy is the main purpose of the distribution.
In fact, "Ubuntu fully working without any further setup" is what
already happens in a majority of cases, I'd say. If Mint does it better,
well, let's take some ideas from them
Then, no OS is ever "fully working without any further setup": everyone
usually customizes it to their needs. And the link you provide doesn't
really talk about fresh installs, but talks about transferring settings
to a new install.

And... isn't it what happens already?

Ehm. These are already all ready when you install Ubuntu, obviously.
