perhaps a decent other question is: Do I want to let the whole world know that router X with interfaces of type Y/Z/Q is located in 1-wilshire.
Ditto if I'm nowhere near my translation key, having a life, for example.
At any rate - it's possible to have informative names without going into "too much" detail - knowing where the device is, what it does (border, core, switch), and what it's connecting (customerA) is pretty darn'd useful all around, and avoids getting into the device type and interface specifics.
