I thought Debian was "The Universal Operating System" ;), so I would 
rather divide like this:

GNOME/KDE system: lots of functionality out-of-the-box
XFCE/LXDE system: decent functionality, usable also on older machines
WM/console system: packages only installed as needed

I expect a *typical* user of the first two categories to appreciate the 
functionality provided by zeroconf. If they know what it is they will 
also be capable of getting rid of it if they so desire, it's not that 
difficult even with Gnome where the main meta-package directly depends 
on avahi-daemon.
