Since the past couple of years on every new FreeBSD I put this in motd for my
linux colleagues and coworkers:

                To apply changes you have made to the network:
                # /etc/rc.d/netif restart && /etc/rc.d/routing restart

Perhaps we could introduce a wrapper to be used with:
        # service network restart

        oliver@local ~ % cat /etc/rc.d/network

        # PROVIDE: network
        # REQUIRE: netif routing
        # KEYWORD: nojailvnet

        . /etc/rc.subr
        . /etc/network.subr


            /etc/rc.d/netif start
            /etc/rc.d/routing start

            /etc/rc.d/netif stop
            /etc/rc.d/routing stop

        load_rc_config $name
        run_rc_command $*
