Hello I cannot answer your questions directly but I have kind of been wondering similar things.
With Profile Manager I am strating to wonder if network accounts are neccasary?
Seems that network accounts are only useful if clients are home syncing their home folders which would enable them to then login from a different machine on the network and get their desktop.
I don't see (and this could be due to my lack of experience) why you couldn't have services only accounts available to the local admins on the clients and then enrol them in Profile Manager.

My understanding is that if you create a Local Network User and for their home folder choose the Local Only option then they will be able to login to the client only from with in their network and their home folder will live solely on the client machine like a Local Account to that Client machine but without the binding to the network the account will not be accessible.
I am still trying to understand what configuration best suits what scenarios. I guess that will come with experience.
