There's always a tradeoff to feature addition.

I sure hope so. I routinely have an embedded device plugged into the Ethernet
port on my laptop and have wireless connected to the internal network. The
embedded devices do not always have a dhcp server on them. If I cannot configure
the network manually, now I cannot do my job.

NM in F9 handles this surprisingly well (Thank You). I hope no one decides to break this behavior because they do not happen to use this feature.

Just my $.02.
