I just thought that deserved quoting. Ignore me.

I'm really more interested in making sure this is expressive enough
than worrying about whether it goes on one line or many (fstab) / has
brackets and equal signs (named.conf). They're all fairly easy to parse,
fairly easy to write, and there's precedent for most of them, so it's
not too big an issue.

There is, btw, a shell based implementation of an fstab-esque ifup/down
scripty thing about. Check for posts by Christian Hammers on this list
about two months ago.

It gets the basics right, but has some issues with routes and roving
profiles that the `above' might be better for.
