Is there a current slot interface which allows write access to /etc/resolv.conf?

My snap is connected to all the "network" interfaces available in my ubuntu-core, but none seem to allow write access to this file.  Shouldn't an interface like "network-control" allow write access to /etc/resolv.conf ?

I think /etc/resolv.conf is generated from a number of sources, but yes, it should be possible to influence it.
