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.

Then the description need changing:

Description wpa_supplicant is a WPA Supplicant for Linux, BSD and Windows with support for WPA and WPA2 (IEEE 802.11i / RSN). Supplicant is the IEEE 802.1X/WPA component that is used in the client stations. It implements key negotiation with a WPA Authenticator and it controls the roaming and IEEE 802.11 authentication/association of the wlan
