It makes sense to me for the upstream defaults to be fairly
restrictive, with changes being made downstream in distros (and their
remixes/spins) to loosen those up as needed.  In other words, our
desktop package group would include whatever was needed to induce the
desired behavior in the Desktop spin.  A good bit of this issue would
need to be addressed upstream though.  (Maybe I just repeated what you
said, not sure if I caught the nuance.)
