Difficult to say without looking at each one, particularly because
we're talking not of the "normal" minor modes, but the ones that do a
minor-mode work in a non-conventional way: highlight-change,
overwrite, indent-tabs...

All in all, though, I suppose that most of them. But, as a datapoint,
I recently added "*server*" directly to
`desktop-clear-preserve-buffers-regexp' in desktop.el; now I see the
clean way would be for server.el to add it (but that would require a
redesign of a bit of desktop.el interface).

[time passes...]

You're gonna say "Then add a function to customize these two and we'll
see whether we need to add anything more", aren't you? :) OK, I'll see
what I can do.

Anyway, I'd prefer not to make many changes to desktop.el (even quite
non-intrusive changes like these) until Lars returns from holidays, as
he said he would take a look at some questions I posed. I'll post a
patch as soon as I've got it ready, and wait for him.
