I don't think anyone is suggesting we shouldn't allow users to tie
power management to activities.  I think the point is we shouldn't
require it.  Of course integrating the power management with activites
make sense, but I don't think making that the only way to configure
your power profiles makes sense.  That is the point of disagreement
