No.  In my proposal above (which I'm not really going to spend more
effort debating since we have bigger issues and the current FESCo
consensus of basically documenting is better than nothing) the
services are enabled in the kickstart - *no* service is enabled by
default after installing via yum later with 100% consistency.  If you
want it on you use chkconfig.
