there are a few that are very useful to many people. while i certainly agree 
that turning off most of them is a good idea for the reasons you state, 
there's no point in making a default that then forces a large % of users to 
configure Konqueror. "sane defaults", right?

in particular, the ones that i would recommend keeping on by default are:

	o the search bar (though i personal don't use it)
	o the User Agent switcher (quite important for getting the most out of konqi 
when browsing)
	o HTML settings (prevents users having to deal with the per-domain 
configuration panel in the Settings dialog)

there are others i tend to personally use a lot (like the translate web page), 
but the above 3 are the only ones that seem to be commonly useful and even 
important to keeping konqueror functioning well for users.
