You speak of this post:
don't you?

An interesting read on the backgrounds of RHEL7 / Centos7. Thanks.

On Avahi: well, the job it SHOULD do is: to announce the services running 
on the machine to the network. As this is done via broadcast, these
announcements should not be routed to outside, anyway.

But yes, there are many admins, who do not like this 'auto-discovery' stuff.
To 'MS Windows' / 'Apple MacOS' like, not 'pure' or 'hardcore' enough.
