Oh, I see what you're saying; if they enabled gnome-user-share to
share documents at their main office.  Hmm, yes.

Ok, how about this - gnome-user-share and vino are by default tied to
networks, rather than global.  So instead of one global GConf key,
they have per-network state stored either in /system/networking or
based of some key in their own config.  When the network changes, they
adjust.

If we do ship a firewall on by default, then yes we would need a way
for these desktop apps to poke holes programatically.  Which is kind
of a mess...if Lennart wouldn't object too much maybe the code could
live inside Avahi, since most of the things we want to enable are
Avahi services.
