There are actually quite a few cases for sharing, not just for wifi.
For example, you might want to share the ethernet over wifi, or you
might want to share the wifi over ethernet (think hotels with
pay-per-hour wifi).  Or you might want to share your 3G over wireless.
Or ethernet.

But I think for now, the sharing should be an explicit operation on the
part of the user.  We also probably want to alert the user about
security/information leakage if they share with a VPN connection active.
