  You were reading my mind.  I was thinking that we badly need this for KDE 
ASAP, and your design is even very similar to what I was thinking.

   One thing I would consider adding is a mechanism for tracking status of 
secondary networks (VPNs, point-to-point links, etc).  The user or VPN apps 
could register their network there (in a persistent manner) and also notify 
when it's available or not.  Quick glance and other replies makes me think 
that's what others have asked for too.
