In headless, there is no need to use nmcli to configure the network,
'systemd-network' '/etc/network/interfaces' are some possibilities.

The utility is generaly pulled as an dependency.

But your saying that even with network-manager package installed, it has to
be configured to run! Not very accessible. Installation should install the
package and at least ask the user if he wants it started, or better yet,
start it and have it ready for use with the commands given to disable or
stop it.

This is already the case, nmcli is an dependency of Gnnome/ for example.
For Mate, it makes less sense as you have other means to configure it.
