It's best to let systemd's networkd deal with all of the network.

You can change interface names, setup bonds, and all kinds of other  
configurations and settings.

The only reason a person will not want to use systemd networkd is when:

the dhcp server requires more information from a dhcp client which  
systemd networkd's dhcp client can't provide (such as a hostname)

wireless is to be used with encryption

and probably some others.

When having both systemd and sysvinit in the LFS Book, the network  
section would be best written so that if a user is using systemd, do  
this if using sysvinit, do this.
