Users, who discover what software is being offered, who know how to switch
the session type, and who will notice that the installed KDE is incomplete.
As if the admin had messed it up. Customising the personal desktop and
choosing between either GNOME or KDE is one of the first things many users
do. They even go as far as replacing the window manager, if alternative wm
are available.

On your fully private machine(s) it may not be an issue at all, I agree.
