AIUI this isn't an entirely accurate characterization. When
NetworkManager is in use on Fedora it takes over entirely; it ignores
the settings in /etc/sysconfig/network-profiles and so forth, it uses
its own configuration data only. For F12 it's growing a feature where it
will 'assume' connections handled by the old-style scripts that are
active when it starts up, and pass them off again when it shuts down,
but still, while it's running, it is in charge of everything networking,
as you describe for Connman. The difference is just that, on Fedora, you
have the option of _not_ running NetworkManager at all, instead using
the older system, if you choose.

Others correct me if I'm wrong, but I think this is the case :)
