Ok, but i think that this is not so interesting due to the
impossibility to view the name with all commands like ip or ifconfig

My suggestion is simple...

when i need to add a label i add this to the iface name
or i maintain the normal name convention

just an addition to the name

Why not change naming convention?

For eth i understand but for bonding and bridging it's only a name
