Yes, shipping nm-applet is really big issue as it has a lot of usability 
problems (and from what I know authors finally realized it) but it's better to 
have something than nothing of course...

The biggest issue is lack of communication from "the only right Desktop" - we 
can't catch changes if these changes are communicated to community too late. 
Lot of new free desktop techs come from Fedora and we know it and we're 
working really hard with upstream to solve it and catch current state. But 
we're unfortunately out of sync with KDE upstream releases and so it's harder 
sometimes.
