Well, I think the rationale was "these are basic services that are
required to bring the machine up into a gui and allow a user to login
and be able to apply updates, etc" 

At least that was my thought. 

I wonder now if we couldn't use the critical path setup to define

Ie, "If your package is not critical path, it should not start by
default. If it is, it _may_ start by default"

Just a thought.
