The 75-net-description.rules is doe describe interfaces, not to carry
out any policy.

Product specific matches do not really belong into default udev rules
shipped by systemd, we should not add more of them.

They might have a place in the hardware database files. I'm not
exactly sure though, how to apply policy from the hwdb to renaming
network devices, there is no user like that at the moment.

What tool is supposed to find that named interface? Can't it just ship
that rule in its own file?
