yeah, I barely remember something, but can't find it right now, but IIRC it
was David who explained to you, that removing the WAN port is not that good

Well, as you can see, this new default configuration is seen as regression by
me, because I'm used to have sane default wan/lan setup on devices with more
then single port. It was always like that.

Ok, DSA, renaming, all fine with me. You're all doing great work, it's really
nice to see 5.4.43 on ERX, but changing default network configurationsuddenly
after 2 releases (18.06 and 19.07) with just because "all-LAN is closer to the
default configuration" reasoning seems a bit off. So I'm inclined to merge the
Perry's fix.
