Sounds like a fine book title.

I can't say I have seen such a compendium. Is this the beginnings of a major book title?

Still a compendium or big book would be needed.

But you could research each item on google.com. Sorry I don't know if anyone has turned this into a book or single web site to cover this.

Chances are you do not need to have it enabled. Seriously.

Games, Windows Ultimate Extras (if you have Vista Ultimate), and Windows Fax and Scan are the only three that will likely matter to you. The rest mostly concern programming, web hosting, and networking features the average user may never use.
