just thought if the Live defaults were intentional or omitted, using these

AutomaticLogin: I do not understand a username question on boot CD/flash, what

It logs in automatically, and does *not* pose a username question.
DisallowTCP: One cannot use xhost, ssh -R/-L for X connections etc.
I am not a security expert but still the X server defaults ensure
this setting on it own is safe.
My understanding is that this simply disallows gdm listening for any
connections. Those other things you mentioned should still work once
logged in (but I could be wrong, I don't use gdm much).
