I would say that the reason NM is not on ArchISO is becaues in the
past it didn't have a simple enough support for a console UI,
which made it very useless in the ArchISO text-only envrionement.

Nowdays, with `nmtui` I'd say it would be ok to have it. NM has been
buggy in the past, but these days, it's a great tool.
