I think that "sensible" would be having the ability to remove the
NetworkManager Applet icon from the taskbar via the standard right-click
method. As it is now, you can't remove it, can't move it, can't
uninstall it without also removing it's ubuntu-desktop meta package.
Doesn't matter that the NM is for wireless networks & you may not have a
wireless device in your system; it just sits there taking up resources.
