"desktop" doesn't mean "standalone".

nfs, nis, rpc are used by desktops once they integrate into a network.

If there was something to report, I would have done so. 

When ever I enable Network Manager, for me, absolutely NOTHING
network-related works. I.e. NetworkManager for me works SO POOR, I can't
even test nor report bugs (It is seemingly screwing up on several things
at the same time. Amongst them DHCP, NIS, DNS and network interfaces - I
even saw network device names change at run-time).

That's why I say "weak spot" - There is no "one-fits-all set of daemons
to enable/disable" - Each situation is different, but there is hardly
any means to customize an installation for an individual situation
during installation with Fedora.
