Yes, this is the Catalyst/IOS method -- which I don't mind as such on
routers (such as the TwinX ports on the 4900M) but it would get quite
confusing on higher density switches, particularly if you have 1/10/25?

I'm much more in favour of the Nexus/NX-OS naming method - everything
starts with 'Ethernet x/y' and that's SO much nicer. :)
