We should look into augmenting the corenetwork infrastructure so that the network_port() macro can handle no defined ports, so that interfaces for the type will be created.  I believe this already works for the interface generation, but the te side needs to be tweaked to not emit an incomplete portcon statement.
This ended up being straightforward.  I updated corenetwork so that it supports defining a port type without labeling any specific ports.  That'll get the interfaces generated so we can write policy correctly (look at the contrib commit if you're not sure what I mean).
