True.  However in some cases that's all that's important.  For
example if you want to run a VPN over your non-NM-aware device,
you need to tell NM that the network is up so it can enable VPN

Being able to tell NM "hey, there's a network here -- enable VPN"
is definitely a worthwhile feature to have, and IMHO less work
than "you need to make NM aware of your custom network hardware
so it can manage that hardware".
