I was wondering about this, too. 

Michael Biebl bug reproduction test did not involve a reboot
('udevadm trigger --action=add' regenerates, sources, or
re-reads---I don't know the correct term--the rule in

So with a rule in that file he unloaded and reloaded his network module
(and all was good, the interface adopting the custom name defined in
the file). Then he ran

 udevadm trigger --action=add

reproducing the bug (interface renamed to a default name though 
a custom name was set in '70-persistent-net.rules').
