[systemd-devel] networkd link state

I would like to introduce a flag "enable=Boolean" in the networkd configuration files.
I am introducing new features that can create a large amount of configuration.

Deleting and restoring configuration can be quiet laborious
Renaming the files to another extension is possibly another option

This configuration will be under configuration management using tools such as chef/puppet/cfengine.

Typically net-tools/networkmanager etc has such a flag and existing in the ifcfg "onboot / enabled".
Switch technology has the ability to turn on and off the port without deleting the configuration also.

What do you think?
