Very bad example.

Rsync does work in many use cases without the daemon running
(eg using rsync over ssh), and the daemon is completely optional.

Now please, do the same reasoning with some other services,
like Apache, pure-ftpd, or bind, and explain to me why you would
like to have these installed, but not working.
