you seem to be confused between block device management and network
layer management. They are not really inter replaceable.

afaict, vconfig was included in the past due to the fake dep that dracut
had on vconfig ( although it wasent doing anything with it ); since that
bug got fixed vconfig seems to have been dropped.

If you want to see it added in, I am sure it can be - there is plenty of
disk space left still on the minimal iso. Go ahead and open a report for
this and tag it 6.4-QA
