Is base-2520 the best positional numeral system?

I've been thinking for weeks now what would be the best positional numeral system.
I first thought it was base-12 because I heard that many people advocated that numeral system.
Then I thought it was base-720720 (the smallest number divisible by all integers from 1 to 2^2^2 = 16).
Then I thought it was base-60 (the smallest number divisible by all integers from 1 to 6).
But my last rumination led me to believe that the best numeral system was base-2520.

It's the smallest number divisible by all integers from 1 to 10.
It's a superior highly composite number and a colossally abundant number.
It's the last highly composite number which is half of the next highly composite number ; and it's the last highly composite number that is a divisor of all following highly composite numbers.
And it's half of 7! (5040).

I'm absolutely certain that it's the ULTIMATE NUMERAL SYSTEM.

What do you guys think about it?

I'm not following why any of these properties make it superior - can you elaborate?
