I don't know when you have looked at systemd-networkd for the last
time, but ever since I looked at it, the trivial case just needs a

And the clear distinction between layers and interfaces is one of the
biggest advantages of systemd-networkd over ifupdown since it's
friendly to configuration management systems.
