I'm doing that on most of my servers and it work very fine. But I'm not using ethx anymore. I prefer using more explicit names that have the side effect to avoid conflicts with internal kernel names (that are still ethx). So I use adm0 for administration, lan0, linux lan, win0 for windows, wlan0 for wifi or wan0 for public ports...

Everything is much clear then.
