You can certainly disable NetworkManager and use manual configuration of

For how long?  I thought I'd read that the plan was to use NM for
everything and eliminate /etc/init.d/network.

We will keep/maintain /etc/init.d/network forever :-) They don't
conflict, so there is no reason to completely drop the old method.

Who wins if they both want to set the default route and DNS servers? Chances are that if you have a working statically assigned interface you would not want to switch them to subsequent DHCP assigned NIC - but on the other hand if you bring up a VPN tunnel, you might. And does NM know enough to drop routes through an interface that is physically down (no link, not ifdown) statically assigned or not?
