I agree that the usage of a "keyring" can be handy at times but the
password manager (gnome keyring) should have the option to just work
without a password prompt at all!

Lets take windows as a example in this case. when i make a wireless
connection the first time i have to fill in a password for that
connection (assuming it's password protected) but when i
reboot/disconnect/whatever so that it needs to connect again it's not
asking for the password at all and just connects. That behavior is
what i would like gnome-keyring to have as well.
