Unless there are any issues with gpg, and to my knowledge there aren't, I can't see any important reason to default 'gpg' to 'gpg2', at least not for f24.

The biggest reason I can think is to make things consistent with the out-of-box behavior of gpg-agent, and Gnome's keyring.
I will say that if this is done, we need to be able to use the normal alternatives system (update-alternatives) to change what's used, without user changes worrying about being in conflict with package updates.

I agree.
