Isn't common adage that the first use of Maven downloads the Internet
(and the kitchen sink)?

Fair enough, I can understand that.

Actually there is good reason to install a Maven Repository Manager on
laptops.  It means that you can work disconnected (as long as you have
already downloaded the artifacts previously) as the offline flag (-o)
doesn't always work that great. I guess the more inquisitive students
will find enough stuff on the internet that they can do this
themselves when they face this problem.
