Allow for multiple network models

Detailed description
In the StarPU-MPI/SimGrid case, we'd need to be running two network models: a standard network model for the MPI network, and a PCI-like network model (TCP_gamma=-1, latency_factor=1, bandwidth_factor=1) for the intra-node CPU-GPU communications. For simplicity, we can say that the two models do not interact, i.e. no communication task will involve both MPI network and PCI transfers, i.e. we'll neglect the effect of the RAM-NIC transfer on the PCI bus.

This is not blocking us, but will most probably be needed to get proper simulation of StarPU-MPI.
