I think Hadrien makes a good point though; not everyone is familiar enough with radians to feel comfortable using them. I'm not sure how practical/ user friendly this would be, but would an F-Curve "Degrees-to-Radians" modifier be a possible solution? That way the artist can still think in terms of degrees, and Blender could still be using radians everywhere internally.
