The NetworkService is the 'front-end' to the end-user API. These do not
concern themselves with things like deployment plans, vlans, isolation
methods etc. The NetworkManager is the one doing the actual grunt work,
including driving the plugins and gurus.

In addition:
The NetworkManager is also used by other managers to 'find' stuff from the
database model. I feel by moving such stuff out, it clarifies the role of
the Network Manager as being the 'driver' of plugins.
