As a clarification on this topic:

We will be implementing ip address labels, as defined by iproute2's "ip
address [...] label eth0:XXX" command (man ip-address). Not to be
confused with ifconfig's legacy method of using aliased or virtual
interfaces, which behave almost like a real interface.

The newer 'ip' utility does not use the legacy concept of alias
interfaces. However, it supports assigning arbitrary names to the
interfaces, called 'labels'. Both methods have in common that they allow
to assign multiple IP addresses to an interface, which can be referenced
by name.
