Another feature introduced by version 6 is the ability to control Mathematica with a joy stick or other game controller. Possibly by doing as you describe above, you are eliminating this functionality. However, if all you use is an ordinary mouse and keyboard, then I suppose the functionality you are disabling is something you aren't using and consequently see no effect. But why go to the trouble of disabling some set of interfaces in the default installation? What do you gain? What harm is there in leaving these enabled?
