Is there anything particular wrong with having everything set to never? What are the intended/desired settings?

As far as I've read[1], when screen is locked, music playback stops.
In order to avoid that (if we want that), we will have to set screen locking after screensaver is deactivated. If we don't want that, we could use a sane default (suggesting 10 seconds after screen is turned off) as Jacob suggested.

AFAIK, we don't turn off the display automatically because it interferes with video playback from stuff like Hulu.

I don't see any options exposed to turn off the display alone. You can lock your device manually or you can suspend after a certain time of inactivity (which I believe locks the screen).

Also, we don't have a screensaver.

After some discussion with Cody and others, marking as opinion and we'll revisit if it becomes a problem
