private IP address ONLY / Disable Network Cards via DO Web Portal

Dear DO Engineers,
Some systems do not need PUBLIC IP addresses. Perhaps the option to Turn On/OFF Public IP address to a droplet would be good. Also, maybe a way to select PRIVATE only. This could decrease IPV4 usage and perhaps costs. Also removes an attack vector to back-end systems. Part of the DO Web Portal could be "network/vLAN setup"
