Another wrinkle to the question:

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Starting_services_by_default

documents that services must not be enabled by default if it is
network-enabled, unless it has FESCo approval.  libvirtd is
network-enabled, since it can be configured to accept connections from
the outside world; but its default configuration is useful without
network configuration.  Likewise, libvirt-guests is primarily useful for
only local guests, but it can be argued that since it can connect to
hypervisors over a network, it is network-enabled.  Do we need to apply
for FESCo exception on either of these two services?
