If people use NetworkManager, the new names are a problem in only one
case that I know about. If the wireless driver fails to register as a
wireless device, the new naming system knows they are network devices,
concludes that they are ethernet types, and gives them a name of en....
rather than wl... When this happens, NM will not connect to the device.

really? I don't think this is related to the name, the driver is
probably just broken? Or did it start to work once you fixed the udev
rule to name it "wlan0"?

I always since years have named my interfaces "cable" and "air" (in
order to find buggy software that relies on "ethX" or "wlanX") and have
not had a problem with networkmanager and such because of this.

I found bugs in other software, though :-)
