Now this would be a real contribution!
I'm using my laptop both docked and undocked, which means sometimes I use
the build-in networkcard, and once docked the one build in the docking
Currently, I have wait for a timeout on the build-in one, since it doesn't
notice there is no cable attached. DHCP has a long timeout (I know, I can
reduce that).
Having this "conditional" path would add a lot of value, mainly for mobile

Keybuk (Scott-James) was working on moving items in the boot-process to a
dependency basis.  This avoids DHCP timing out if there's no network cable
plugged-in. ...And avoids NTP timing out unless you have a successful Layer
3 (IP-level) connection up and running.
