I have not tested but wouldn't it be sufficient to let a relevant
metapackage simply conflict with network-manager?  From my understanding
the conflict should be "stronger" than recommends (if not I'd consider
it a bug) and so apt-get / aptitude should leave out the conflicting

This would not solve the "other packages we do not want and come with
network-manager" issue.
