Well, probably not "soon". RHEL lags Fedora by at least a couple of
years, generally. F15 "broke" a lot of other things with the moves to
systemctl, Gnome3, etc, btw. Also, btw, there's been a huge amount of
controversy and bikeshedding over the pro/con of ethx names, which have
been somewhat arbitrarily assigned for some time.

How can I get the xymon network traffic graph (in trends) to work again?
The only network traffic graph I have still only has eth0 in it (from
old data before the Fedora upgrade.) I could probably force the name
back to eth0 in the OS, but that seems like a cheesy workaround, since
this is how the naming is going to be going forward. How can I get
xymon to become aware that my NIC is called p33p1?
