Indeed. I strongly believe that this is bad enough to disqualify it as 
the default implementation.

We should also think hard about switching to a new default since 
currently many other major distributions are moving to NetworkManager 
and/or systemd-networkd (which nowadays is usable, works well for 
simpler use cases and will be installed on every Debian system anyway).
