The thing is that all interface types behave like this when a network namespace is removed:
they're destroyed together with the namespace.  All which can be deleted anyway, for which
an `ip link del' command works, - like, physical NICs are the only exception here b/c you
can't remove a physical NIC from a physical machine this way.

So in this context, wg interfaces are *already* behaving like all other virtual interfaces,
and this is done by linux network/namespace subsystem, not by wireguard.
