 During last two months I have seen at least three people
 getting confused why wireless interfaces were denoted
 to be wired by the naming.

 Any cross platform software cannot rely on interface names

 Um, and why is loopback interface named any differently?

 If you are going to generalize interface name, please do
 not tie it to one type of interface. Peoples scripts will
 break anyway.
