I think it would be niftier if the identification string of the card

choose and how.
For extra points, add a "identify nic" button which blinks the LED's of
the appropriate nic.
Doesn't the "identify" button in Anaconda already do this?

Yes, it does, but like I said, it only works if one has an Ethernet cable with signal coming from it plugged in.

On my X41 thinkpad "ethtool -p eth0" works without any attached network cable
to identify it. So it might be either a bug in anaconda or thr NIC might
not be able to do this.

Both my NICs are capable of this as Debian is listing their names in the installer, so do the *BSDs.
