Personally, when I stare at it, all I care about is the loop
type (DS0, DS1, DS3, OCx, whatever) and in some cases the transport
mechanism (ATM, Frame, SMDS, etc). Since you're going to have
different attributes after the interface type and port, there's going
to be some level of variation.

Well, all I'm really interested in (pending this discussion aging a
bit..) is why / can't be a valid DNS character.. I mean, whats really
the problem in simply allowing it?
