Just out of curiosity why is FESCO with the finger in this as in should 
not the default simply be all services should be turned off by default 
then it would be up to each SIG to decided which service they need/want 
to be on for their target users?

For instance the Gnome Desktop SIG has different needs on which service 
should be on than for example Server SIG like cups and avahi bluetooth 
etc.. make no sense on server install but openssh does and visa versa 
like openssh makes no sense being on a novice end users desktop install 
etc.  so it comes logically to me atleast that the default simply should 
be off and the SIG decide themselves what their needs are and turn on 
the services for their target audience..

Does not FESCO act as an hindrance to SIG's work by deciding for them 
which services they should turn on or off ?
