	Not sure why you see this as abuse... if there are no network services
running, I can only see this as a good thing. Often, when in single user
mode, I need to add patches, grab config files from other machines,

	I realize this is the historic way things have been done, but as long
as the system not dishing out services to other systems, what is the
harm of configuring an IP address on the interface? 

	Isn't this part of having a system that "just works"?
