More flexible size categories

We make extensive use of router machines in our networking and security labs. These don't require large amounts of memory but they do need more than two network adapters. Consequently, the new(ish) size categories don’t fit our requirement at all.

Would it be possible to create three new size categories:

512 MB / 1 CPU / 8 NIC
1 GB / 1 CPU / 8 NIC
2 GB / 2 CPU / 4 NIC

Who would most benefit from this idea? Lab Developers or Lab Authors
What is the problem you are trying to solve?

Use router VMs connected multiple internal networks without breaking an overall RAM limit

    This capability can be accomplished by opening a support ticket to add additional sizes for your Organization.

    CompTIA opened a ticket (569983) June 22, 2022. Support replied that we can't even do this and customer was told to put in a feedback request which was done here. This ticket was later escalated in a new ticket by the client on July 12th (584383) which was escalated by Ops on July 14th to Infrastructure but that has not been replied to since going up to Infra. Ops has questioned and Joel has escalated again today 7/20. PLEASE help get this reviewed and addressed.

    Why are we tying # of Nics to VPS sizes? I have been told by the Ops team a majority of custom size requests have been for smaller RAM/vCPUs, but more Nics...
