These changes are made only for the live cd environment to make Fedora 
more suitable as a live CD. You would lose them all once you install it 
however. It appears that a nautilus change only for the live cd 
environment doesn't add any real value and hence changing the default 
file manager behavior is different from the other non-persistent changes 
you have pointed out.
