In our situation we would never come up with a networking card "missing". We have mechanisms in place to make sure this doesn't happen.
Being able to tie a device to a given MAC address is potentially interesting though.
As for not reading the manuals, I don't read the source code to the kernel either. The environment I work in takes hundreds of pages to document and is changing in small ways on a daily basis. I read LWN and am always on the lookout for new sources of information, but the simple truth of the matter is I do not have the time to be an expert in every single aspect of Linux, networking, etc. I wish I did.
Thanks for the information.
