If you have checked the "weathermap" on tools like cacti or zabbix, they show the Links status between nodes, just like nnm. 

Furthermore, they display ( in text boxes), additional info about the interfaces. For ex: ifalias, ifdescr, ifname etc.

The icing on the cake is when one moves the mouse pointer on the links. A dynamic page with certain graphs are displayed instaneously.

When can we have this joy on nnmi?

You missed to write about how link color changes depending on interface utilization.

Also, having multiple threshold levels, so severity of generated alarm is set depending on which level is crossed.

Not that zabbix/cacti are as beautiful and easy to configure as NNMi but flexibility there is years ahead.
