I would be happy with that.
One of the very first things I do with any new installation is click on
System->Services and de-select everything I don't need... from both
Runlevel 5 and Runlevel 3, the latter being because I also often edit
/etc/inittab to tell it to start up in text mode rather than X mode (then I
can run startx when I want to).
I usually end up with a fairly lean-running system that way.
I'd still rather have it (on disk) and not need it, than need it and not
have it, since "not having it" often comes without a clear and
understandable way to get it.
