I agree on always bringing up lo. This should actually be hardcoded:
Everybody needs lo, nobody needs it any differently.

However, there should be no special handling of lo in rc.d/network in
the way you propose, as this would make the scripts ugly and non-KISS. I
don't see a problem with simply hardcoding this (you can put it right in
the beginning, even before udev if you like).
