I looked at this page and

Why can't this be extended to all domains?

It's important for me to properly have vifnames because if you have a
large number of hosts then arbitrary vif names are much harder to read
than custom vifnames. I know, I've been nagging about it but that's
only because I haven't seen any real response to it... other than other
users who seem to support the idea.

So can this please be added, Ian?
