Up to I haven't encountered a real show stopper beside the re(4) issues
which seem to be fixed at least for my configuration. Nevertheless all
those minor glitches which come with a new major release will hopefully
be fixed sooner in RELENG_7 than RELENG_7_0. That's the reasone why I
don't track RELENG_7_0, but up to now there should be much difference
anyway. I think I will track RELENG_7 til RELENG_7_1 will be branched.

Should be oka, to put your primary IP address and the interface options
in an 'ifconfig_re0' line and to add additional IPs to the interface
using a 'ipv4_addrs_re0' line. At least I've tested it on a VMware and
it seems to work just fine.
