A note when stating to convert physical interfaces.

A non-existant physical interface should be allowed to be present in the configuration and should be syntax checked like an existing interface but without executing commands that will fail because it's not existing. Also a warning has to be given to the user about the interface not existing.

Also the scripts configuring the interface needs to be able to add a device that comes into existant state. This is eg. Usb interfaces and renamed interfaces.
A op command could be added to "reconfigure" a interface. It is possible that this also will be executed by udevd or by other automatical means when a new interface is detected on the device.
