Well, if I had my druthers, I'd stick name="net-mgt", "net-pub", and "net-10g"
in the udev rules, and not care about 1/2/3 and race conditions, because
meaningful names are easier to not screw up (just last week found a system that
had eth1 and eth2 reversed in some iptables rules, wouldn't have happened if
they were -mgt and -pub).

Only thing stopping me is getting iptables to accept '-i net-10g', and the
distro /etc/sysconfig/network scripts like ifup and ifdown playing nice....

So it sounds like what I want as a sysadmin is the same thing you want
as a maintainer...
