NM is a daemon that was originally designed to manage wireless networks 
on a laptop. Why would you want a command line interface for that? As it 
extends further maybe but as of now I don't see any good use case for 
that. There are others like yum-updatesd that doesn't like really have 
any command line interfaces to the daemon itself. It is pretty common in 
that aspect. They are merely desktop application helpers.
