I think you're missing the point. Points.

First, these Ubuntu installs are for product testing. For paying
customers. Who won't be disabling Netplan. Which means disabling Netplan
in the test environments DOES. NOT. HAPPEN.

Second, the YAML version forces dependencies on NetworkManager, systemd,
and a(nother) YAML parser without making management of network
interfaces any better or easier by hand and only minimally by automation
tools like Ansible.

Netplan is vendor gratuitous changes and I will continue to hate Ubuntu
for engaging in the practice.
