0.96 also passed the new feature acceptance deadline (though not very long ago)

Thinking in terms of master first, how do you find the patch aside
from the fact that it is probably not applicable to mainline in its
current form. I ask this since the patch is building upon the 0.94
(and prev) sugar scheme of having its settings stored in local
connections.cfg rather than share these settings with gnome/globally
(current nm0.9 efforts).

P.S. I may have misunderstood since I'm not upto speed with what your
nm0.9 patch(es) exactly do, but I have that impression.
