I'm doing this. However, if you remove and mount cards, in my case just
audio related, not network related cards, then even network device
names are not consistent. It's not a serious issue, you just need to
decide to use one or the other workaround, but some users who have
portable scripts, perhaps dislike to check all scripts against
systemd/udev pitfalls.

[rocketmouse at archlinux ~]$ grep enp?s0 /usr/local/sbin/alice-dhcp
  echo ; dhcpcd $(basename $(ls -d /sys/class/net/enp?s0)) ; echo
  echo ; dhcpcd -x $(basename $(ls -d /sys/class/net/enp?s0)) ; echo
