I'm not sure I'd agree with that. I'm sure it makes more sense, but at
the same time, this is not the way virutally all other implementations
handle it. Typically in the Windows drivers, this shows up under the
wireless networking settings, and as well in WLAssistant or whatever
that was called.

I would imagine it would be best implemented in NM due to its
proximity to the wireless drivers and exposed/configurable via dbus so
that the likes of gnome-power-manager could enable/disable it.
