I'm not a network-manager fan myself, but please do not do this.

ENABLE/DISABLE switches are *ugly*, as their effect is not limited to
boottime changes. Especially in case of packages who ship with such a
variable set to disable by default, this is very annoying.

If you don't want an initscript to run at boottime, just move the
symlink from S* to K*, and that'll work -- also across package updates.

The volume of a pizza of thickness a and radius z can be described by
the following formula:
