Yeah, but it doesn't make much sense there either.  Appending
cloned_interfaces instead of simply setting it is probably marginally
useful to like 10 people in the world, but in this scenario only makes it a
bit more complicated. It's inconsistent with every other common rc.conf
setting and adds a scripting syntax which is unneeded and many are likely
to be unfamiliar with.  Since it's a non-experienced user using the doc a
lot, distilling to bare essentials is the best.
