It depends on what the target audience of the feed is. If it's targeted at people who will be looking primarily for (1) content with novelty value, (2) reasonably high-quality content, and (3) meaningful/informative content, then it would make sense to limit the feed to (1) new pages, (2) patrolled edits, and (3) non-redirect pages, respectively.

Here's the code I came up with:
I decided it's probably better to use feedrecentchanges, since that doesn't limit the feed of "new" pages to those with only one revision in their history.
Another approach I tried was adding an "excluderedirects" parameter: https://www.mediawiki.org/w/index.php?title=User%3ACondorcent%2FApiFeedWatchlist.php&type=revision&diff=2099782&oldid=2099781
