It's possible to install and to use Cinnamon without NetworkManager which I have done.

Why Gentoo developers don't give us that option by default?

The ebuild maintainers gave you this option: The cinnamon ebuild supports USE=networkmanager, so it is no problem to switch it off e.g. in make.conf or package.use

yes, that's just a trick, because cinnamon-control-center has NetworkManager as hard dependency
