So we basically it could be fine to only show a warning (or hint) in either:

- node-specific bridge create if a vnet with that name already exists

- vnet create, if such a bridge already exists

And similar for edit and deletions, as a user might wonder why the bridge is
still there if one deleted either vnet or the bridge entry.

As then the user is aware of it and can better decide if they indeed to
create such a duplication.

That might be a bit more work for one not used to our code base though, so
for starters adding a hint to the documentation could be enough.
