In my case, WiFi was enabled ("iwlist scan" saw my AP),
but /var/lib/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.state 
said NetworkingEnabled=false

I take it you mean debugging by developers.
Please remember, there are a few users as well!

Personally, I only read a syslog if something has gone wrong,
or is not working as expected.
So I'm grateful for error or warning messages that give me a hint.

I'm afraid NM gives me far too much information -
on a normal day nearly half my /var/log/messages 
is taken up with messages from NM,
the vast majority of which are no use to me -
basically, if everything has gone as expected
I don't feel I need to know.
