You might need to include subinterfaces, and FR DLCIs / VC number
as well. We use something very roughly like (I've, urm, simplifed
this, i.e. written down what we ought to use)

<2 letter POP code> <router number> - <1 let card type> <card no>
  - <i/f number> [ - <sub i/f number> [ - <DLCI num> ]]
  [ <2 letter POP code> <router number> ]

So
TH1-S2-3-4-5-ME6

is The 1st router in Telehouse Serial2/3.4, DLCI 5 which connects
to the 6th router in MAE-East.

This is readable iff you understand the convention first, which
is arguably an advantage in dealing with some customers.

Just an idea (not and RFC proposal :-) )
