As far as I know, both will be shipped, and as for my own opinion,
both are needed.
Part of the reason for this is that they both deal with the exact same
backend; and not all variants of Ubuntu ship the gnome-control-center
pieces (I can already think of Xubuntu which is currently not shipping
Furthermore, not all the settings are covered by both applications.
The gnome-control-center stuff includes proxy configuration which is
not something available (yet) in nm-connection-editor. This is partly
a decision coming from Gnome and a side effect of the move to Gnome
Shell, which ships its own module for the network "indicator", while
still using some parts of nm-applet.
And all this brings me back to the fact that the gnome-control-center
module for Network uses dialogs coming from nm-applet, so for now they
are not really possible to separate.
