Monero mixin 0 is still superior to a Zcash "T" transparent transaction due to the fact that Monero uses stealth addresses for every transaction whereas Zcash does not have this feature.
I do not imagine there would be any scenario for Zcash to eliminate transparent transactions as this would break a lot of the intentional bitcoin compatibility that is currently part of Zcash. There's also no feasible way to create a Z shielded transaction on a mobile device due to the RAM and CPU requirements. It takes 60 seconds on a 4 core top of the line x64 processor - expect it to take maybe 20 minutes and to kill the battery on a mobile processor. Not going to happen.
TLDR; the default use of Monero is far more private than the default use of Zcash and this will continue to be the case for the foreseeable future.
