<allow send_foo="a"/> <allow send_bar="b"/> allows anything where
foo=a *or* bar=b.

<allow send_foo="a" send_bar="b"/> allows anything where foo=a *and* bar=b.

What you want is either:

<allow send_interface="org.freedesktop.NetworkManagerInfo"

or simply:

<allow send_destination="org.freedesktop.NetworkManagerInfo"/>

In practice the latter is likely to be more appropriate - if you add
more interfaces to the NMI service later, you'll probably want them to
have the same access control as the base NMI interface.
