> wwp0s29u1u4i6 is so much easier to remember than eth0, don't you think?

You don't remember it. You add it to your system configuration and then forget about it. This is important if you ever add a second interface. For all other uses, there's "ip intf ls" and copy/paste.

You profess to be a sysadmin. You should know that.

Besides, the new scheme can be turned off, so you get a choice.

Stop spreading FUD and stop selectively reading systemd documentation.
