Who wins if they both want to set the default route and DNS servers? 
Chances are that if you have a working statically assigned interface you 
would not want to switch them to subsequent DHCP assigned NIC - but on 
the other hand if you bring up a VPN tunnel, you might.  And does NM 
know enough to drop routes through an interface that is physically down 
(no link, not ifdown) statically assigned or not?
