 On constants in general, as far as WP is concerned, less is better. I'm
 primarily a plugin developer and feel that the strength of WP as a
 platform comes from the hook and filter system which allow for essentially
 an infinite number of unique installations/applications of the core

 The only instances where I'm in favor of constants are

 - when they are necessary - WP_CACHE allows various types of caching to be
 loaded instead of the built in cache and the object cache is a
 prerequisite to the hook & filter system
 - when they turn on a component - WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE turns on the network
