Subjectarbitrary ethernet devices?

Erik Troan and I just noticed that with kerneld (at least), ethernet
devices (at least) have to be accessed in order and be consecutive.
That is, say that you have an /etc/conf.modules file containing
alias eth5 3c509
kerneld will not load the module when you run "ifconfig eth5 <ip_address>",
and so ifconfig will respond "SIOCSIFADDR: No such device".

This appears to mean that interfaces must be brought up in order.

Is there any particular reason for this?
