I'm not sure about most of these, but I'd like to note that
wpa-supplicant is not a wireless-only tool (that one of your sentences
seem to imply). I use it at dorm to authenticate to wired network (as
well as at home to authenticate to home wifi network). And because some
NM features clearly require its presence, it would be broken if it did
not require it.
