Thank you for the great feedback.
Your suggestions are really great but I'm not sure yet how to implement them in a way that is easy to use for the player.

A huge list of ON/OFF toggles for every zones would be a bit daunting.
I'm thinking of having the Addon check for specific keywords (ex: LFG, LFM, WB, Delves, etc.) and only let the message that contains them go through. That could be a nice and easy solution (with the exception of Cyrodiil where people communicate to synchronize their attacks). Will have to think of the best way to handle that one.

Zone Chat PUGs

For what it is worth, zone chat is used to organize pick-up-groups (in all zones), if only to attack World Bosses. In Stormhaven, Deshaan, and Grahtwood, zone chat is used to form groups for Undaunted dungeon quests.

Occasionally, zone chat is used to create a group(s) that visit the dolmens in one or more zones, too. Also, zone chat is used to recruit players who want to complete Daily quests -- especially for World Bosses (for example, in Summerset and in Wrothgar) but also for delves. Groups for daily quests are often organized by guilds, so players often use Discord or a similar external application to communicate instead of Zone Chat -- but there are exceptions. (Some might use the guild zone chat channel instead.)

If a player is not going to participate in any such groups, then I suppose that an add-on which attempts to censor zone chat in every zone (except one or more chosen by the developer) might be useful. It would be even more useful for everyone if the player could use choose the zones to censor, and could use a keybind to toggle the exclusion of PUG messages on or off.
