I really think you should keep it as simple as possible,
set only page, words, language and zoom by default
on the status bar and put all other possibly useful
things under view, to give the status bar the possibility
to expand it and make more useful for your specific needs.

Note: The above is for writer, the same goes to setting only
the most basic, most used tools by default on other programs.

Language... why do we need to tell people what language they are in. there
has never been a moment in my life where I had forgotten what language I
speak and read. i guess this could be useful for people who speak
different languages, but then again it does not take that long to recognize
that the words on the screen are not English. when I see Spanish, German,
or Swedish I do not wander if it is English. now I would not see the
difference between German and Swedish, but I could see that it
is definitely not English. so why is it even there?

I use it sometimes, it's useful when you are translating or creating a
document in multiple languages (like instruction manuals) it sets the
auto-correct to the language you are currently using, which is useful.
It might not be used by most users who just have it in the language
they always use, i guess you could also hide it, but i think the status
bar would look a bit empty without it.
