No argument here. I agree that you can do a lot in Linux. It is, as you
say, an architecture decision, that can be enabled with this addition mode
of operation. Without the mode of forcing things external, however, you
would always need to put this function internal or play games with VLANs
overlapping to get traffic to forward the way you want it.
