cpuspeed, mdmonitor and ntpd are no more extra than NetworkManager

Yes, They are. For a desktop. A Live CD is targeted at the desktop. Nothing else.

Daemon number is a red herring. A gigantic do-it-all daemon is worse than
a set  of small well-defined services. cpuspeed, mdmonitor and ntpd are
definitively not the ones who should be axed first - they're small, proven
and without side-effects (unlike others)

Unless there is any do-it-all daemon enabled by default this is irrelevant. There are side effects for all daemons - slower performance, potential higher security risks etc. The less the better.
