net.ifnames=0 doesn't do anything

7.4. Managing Devices says that

The traditional naming scheme using eth0, eth1, etc can be restored by adding net.ifnames=0 on the kernel command line.

In reality it doesn't do anything. AFAICS there is handling of net.ifnames in eudev's 80-net-name-slot.rules (which is not installed due to --enable-rule_generator).

Unfortunately I don't quite understand how exactly rules are working (if 75-persistent-net-generator.rules calls write_net_rules, why is needed then? Looks like some divergency between eudev & udev-lfs to me), so can't investigate further.
