Typical setups are just the desktop, plus a small number of apps,
often apps people have some control over. No one cares about xterm or

Of course. That's why I've been encouraging a network-aware backend

It's also vital to manage system-wide stuff, not just user
preferences. Red Hat has some plan for that, but I think it's outside
the scope of GNOME.
