There is no way to specify for example "tap+" like any interface which
starts with "tap"?

Yes, and it probably has to map from name to ID all the time, because
interface could change in mean-time (replaced with some other tunnel),
but with the same name.

How does it "subscribe" to changes? By interface name or interface ID?
Does Linux API provides some way of saying to listen for all such and
such interfaces?
