Well, for people who want it to “just work” (and AFAICT that's the aim
of network-manager people), it was previously working, and is no longer
without tweaking a configuration file, hence my calling it a regression
(from an very-end-user point of view).

I agree that having more flexibility isn't a regression, though.
