But a config can get another attribute, "device" that makes it the
default config for a device, and it works like our ifcfg (where
"device" is in the filename)

Don't over-engineer it ! Nothing in the feature request asks for the
separation of device and its config.

For the future, this can be usefull. For wireless devices you can switch
between several APs just by associate different configurations to one

No question about the usefulness. Just focus on the simple parts (one
config per interface) now and extend later.

Hm, but here's conflict of requirements. As I understand from Jiri, we
should define rest-api not only for this simple purpose but also for
future. We need to discuss this ...

Perhaps I should re-word myself: My intention is to design the API so that we
do not have to rewrite it when we need e.g. support for multiple interfaces
(and therefore break other web clients or, even worse, existing vendor's
modules, which depend on that API).

What I find important is extensibility of the interface without breaking
existing apps (e.g. adding more tags into a XML document is fine, so is
defining more paths).
