[CentOS] NetworkManager

So I noticed that the minimal installation of CentOS 7 comes - in 
contrary to minimal CentOS 6.5 - preinstalled with the NetworkManager.

I somewhat understand its usefulness, especially for wlan / desktops, 
and its not like it really bothers me.. That being said, it seems to me 
with my naive linux understanding that it kinda goes against the 
definition of a "minimal" installation.

Does anyone know why this decision was made / a good idea?
