I also checked Fedora 21 and 24 and their Xfce desktop does not list NetworkManager-gnome when I do a group info xfce.  So there is something wrong in the packaging of the xfce group in Centos7-x64 that Scott provided me...

I missed that your two emails pointed to different urls.  Thanks. But...

Enabling epel does not provide an Xfce group.
Enabling epel does not give me the missing rpms.  It does provide both 
mixer and pulseaudio-plugin, but not the others.

So Xfce is still broken at some level of brokeness with C7.
