This is an excellent point that should not be over looked.

However, when we install fedora we have numerous options, Desktop,
Workstation, Server, Custom.

In which case what is to stop the install being customised so that
Desktop/Workstation machines have ALSA's volume turned up. The server
install to be muted.

I think it would be fair to assume that some one doing a custom install
should be slightly more technically literate and being able to work it
out for them selves (even if it IS still a right royal pain in the
arse).
