Hello,
Networkmanager 0.8 is used in RHEL 6, which will be supported until the 
end of year 2023. (it was released in 2011)
https://access.redhat.com/site/support/policy/updates/errata/

So there are some professional users (like me) which would be interested 
in NM 0.8 support ...

About tdepowersave, I believe that the current powersaving features in 
R14 already work in RHEL6.
