enable these by default.
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.

Bzzt. Lots of things on the desktop require a working clock (try to unsync
yours and watch havoc breaking loose)

Working clock is a requirement. Not ntpd. There is a difference.

, cpuspeed is a requirement on
laptops and nice-to-have on every recent desktop system (a hot mobo is a
loud mobo, people like hearing their ogg files too)

They are not required to be enabled on every system. Only on laptops.

, and killing mdadm
removes access to parts of the disks (md is used on desktops, and live cds
are used on systems with a linux version on disc)

Remember that Live CD dont support upgrades. You can only target first time user's with them as of now.
