I don't mind as long as it's not like half the roster, and it's not characters that are prominently being used for hype and advertising *cough*brawl*cough*.

I say yes. I would like if they could be kept sort of secret but that's hard to do in this day and age.

If they are unnanounced before launch and kept secret as bonus characters then sure.

If they want any more characters from a series that already have a character (like Murray or Zeus) they should be unlockable.

I don't know, I really like having everyone from the start. I can instantly try all of the characters to see who fits my playstyle best, without having to play through the game with a character I don't like several times to unlock who I really want to main.

For me: It gives the game a bonus lifetime

No, its a lame method that arbitrarily increases playtime which can easily be done without locked characters.

All it really does is exclude a lot of people from playing their favourite character right away.

Maybe if it's the Final Boss character in playable form. That's about the only situation I can think of that wouldn't be just annoying.
I enjoyed unlocking alternate costumes and stuff for existing characters, though. Maybe some character costumes like Daisy in Smash Bros.?

This. It's annoying wanting to use a specific character but then finding out you have to unlock them. Or taking your copy to play on a friend's console.

Although they could just ask you when you start up the game if you want all characters unlocked, and it'll keep asking you until you meet the conditions regardless of answer.
