To me it depends on the level of feelings during the relationship and after.
I am very good friends (I wouldn't say "best") with some exes I just dated casually for brief periods of time. We also mutually agreed to see other people (like a mutual break up). In that case neither of us ever developed any real feelings for each other. Those can make good friends.
Meanwhile if someone was terribly brokenhearted, I'd say bad idea to stay friends.1
