couldn't we use the interface name for matching? That seems a

In the past some argued that only the MAC address is kind of reliable
to match. Obviously, this is not really true. Changing a MAC address
is as simple has changing an interface (udev rules).
I am developing an embedded software and when deploying the software
production, the only thing that I know for sure will match is the
interfaces name, as the MAC addresses will obviously be different from
board to board.
This seems to be a common use case for embedded systems. So yes, I
agree we should just add an additional match for the interface names.
Care to send a patch?
