[systemd-devel] networkd link state

If you could expand on how you solve the following:

Systemd-networkd is a single process and it reads its configuration from /etc/systemd/network.
How do unit files, solve a single process managing multiple netdevs?

Taking a switch as a use case with 64 ports, a port could have quite a lot of configuration associated with it; in a file such as /etc/system/network/sw0p1.link (network/link).
Are you suggesting we using symlinks like systemctl  manages daemons on boot to solve the enable/disabled problem?

I think this should be consisted with other unit enablement in systemd not handled by introducing a new enabled/disabled "flag"
