I think that it pretty dangerous. There are two many places in our code
which will be assuming a non-NULL bridge or network name. We should not
risk NULL-pointer crashes by changing this to allow NULLs. Also this will
be incompatible apps parsing the XML which expect that the source is

It is also semantically dubious - if there is no <source> then what
is the difference between type=bridge & type=network ?

If we want a disconnected netwrk, then we'd need type='none' IMHO.
