[j-nsp] [OT] unit-level vs interface-level description

Thank you all for your answers. That gave me a lot to think about.
One additional question: do you use the same approach (description on both
levels) for switch-ports inside DC or in campus network? Assuming that we
talk about regular access level ports that only have unit 0 with "family
eth" on them. I mean - in this case, descriptions on unit-level and
interface-level will be pretty much the same?
Does it make sense to let go of interface-level descriptions and use only
unit-level? Because from what I remember, majority of internal reporting
stuff uses sub-interfaces in their output (from top of my head - "show
ethernet-switching table" and "show lldp ne")
