Some people IS aware of that, but is also aware that if N-M disables a dhcp 
interface in /etc/network/interfaces on install, that interface is not 
reenabled on 'update-rc.d network-manager disable'. This means no networking 
at all.

Also, some other people may be not aware of that. They just think that Debian 
should provide a set of packages on which desktop environments do not mess 
with static network configuration (YES, a dhcp stanza is static configuration, 
it is there because the admin put it there).
