    I suggest a subsystem match here, or generally some
    SUBSYSTEM!="net", GOTO="end_of_file"
    around almost all rule files that should not match on network interfaces, as
    users can rename them to almost all crazy names.

    @Kay: Perhaps it could simplify some rulesets to have a special jump target or
    option to skip entiere rules files.
