And consider the nice things that happen when you copy over your config to a new system that has the network adapter plugged elsewhere.
How is that any worse than the current default which depends on MAC addressed stored on the disk? The new system won't have the same MAC addresses, and hence you get some random ethX numbers which don't reflect the config.
