I think Debian has a place on a standalone system not connected to any
network. For such a machine, it is entirely reasonable to disable
TCP/IP networking in the kernel.
If any program which does not explicitly require networking stops working
these conditions, that's a bug in that program and should be fixed.
For example, X works perfectly fine over Unix domain sockets only.
