Yes, this would be an option, however: This embedded device is
not a router, so it would make more sense, if it would get its
network information from the PC. But most PCs (esp. Windows)
don't act this way. If the embedded device is e.g. configured
for a 192.168.x/8 network, it could clash with the configuration
of the PC. Therefore I believe a link local address is suitable,
even if this involves limitations of connectivity.

The conclusion for network-manager is: The way it is implemented
currently is fine.
