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.
