A few people on Fedora forums.  My own, very un-scientific evidence is
that once or twice, manually editing has given errors that I don't
believe were due to typos.  After getting bitten once, now I just
quickly set up the network, download network-tui and fix it.

Sorry if I was not clear on this.   My point is that Fedora is trying to
make it the default and pushing people to use it rather than the more
traditional tools.  At present, yes, it can still be disabled without
any special effort.
