Is there anything preventing PK from connecting to the network over

It depends on NetworkManager-glib, not NetworkManager. And it does so
to check the status of the network connection before checking for
updates. I believe that if NetworkManager doesn't respond (because
you're bringing up your network some other way), it will continue on as
though the connection is said to be up by NM.
