They should use Ubuntu Studio or something else. 'Easy-setup' Arch
derivatives do exist, but who will support those users when the
inevitable problems arise?

If someone isn't interested in computer technology and only wants to
use a computer, then you do him/her a disservice by providing an
easy-to-install Arch. Now, if the parties providing such Arch installs
are also going to be providing support and trouble-shooting services,
then no issue. Archbang, for example, provides their own support.
