I kind of see your point but I think there is room for minor 
improvements such as these. There is a difference between replacing 
packages and doing these simple configuration changes. Replacement 
packages (often) break your upgrade experience.  I would like to do a 
compose with sudo enabled like this and get feedback from more users.  
It might help/push Fedora to do it as well soon.
