Today, I checked on two servers of ours running both a recent CURRENT (i.e. 
12.0-CURRENT #43 r306701: Wed Oct  5 06:40:40 CEST 2016) via "service netif 
restart" the
upcoming network and realised that the default route is lost then!

I'm able to config the route via "service routing restart" - or manually as I 
otherwise. But I recall that I did a simple "service netif restart" in 
recently and that worked.

Has there been a change? What is now the official way to restart network?

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

<snip code - which i think looks good>

I think this is a great idea - especially as it would make it easier for dev's and other novice admin's to use freebsd as a development platform.
