Now, for those people that have seven pieces of DLC, yes, this incentivizes the purchase of new songs. To that I say... "So?"

Okay, to further prove my point about how easy it is to get coins, I just checked the facebook app. So far, I've played 18 songs on RBB. However, I'm currently sitting at 14,450 coins. There are a few goals that I'm close to finishing, that will net me several thousand more. There's quite a few goals I haven't even started yet. Again, I'm just playing the new tracks in RB3 as I would be following the DLC release day any week of the year. No grinding involved. I've only had to select which goals I wanted to work on at any given time (up to 10 at once), and it's easy money. These goals really aren't making you jump through any hoops. They're actually very easy. If you haven't looked into yet, give it a go.
but dont get me wrong, as for as the game its self is, im really enjoying it, i was only putting forward my concerns about the coins, and all that means is, i wont be playing it as much as i first intended and i wont be buying as much dlc as i first intended, i still enjoy the game, but most likely wont find myself playing much past collecting all the achievements (not inc dlc ones).
It's very easy to get coins, at first. It could get tricky once you run out of all of the easy challenges to complete. Sure, they can add more challenges in the future, but I'm guessing you'll never see something like "Complete 1 Funk Song, Solo" ever again, once you complete it the first time.
Yes, you can always do Score Wars, though I seem to be limited to doing only one at a time [the one that looks like it was suggested by Blitz automatically, with a random PS3 friend that owns Blitz, and with a random song that we both own?]. I don't currently have any Facebook friends that own Blitz and I might never get any - even if I buy it for all 3 of the PS3 RB3 owners that I am friends with, only 1 of them was ever willing to link their game to FB. I don't blame Harmonix for that situation, and I fully understand the real-life choices they had to make. But it makes the game play a little awkward.

Total Song Library = 1,010 songs, including ALL games and track packs that can be exported into RB3
Or are you talking about the overall total score leaderboards? Those, as with all past RB games, do favor people that play the most songs and get the highest score on all of those songs.
as for the coins, im not hugely sad about it, i mean, i was a tad annoyed when i first realised but eh, whats a few days grinding coins to play for highscores with, right? :P
