As the person who maintains GNOME Shell Extensions package in Fedora and
did help with GNOME Tweak Tool,  I wouldn't recommend installing
extensions or tweak tool by default.  Extensions don't have a stable API
and if things break which they do, you will likely be left without a way
to even login to your system and tweak tool has a number of niggling
bugs (see GNOME bugzilla for details).    For example, if you use GNOME
Tweak tool to install a theme,  the revert button doesn't work nor does
it show the current theme.   Maybe things will stabilize in the future
but for now,  I am all for just for concentrating on the basics.
