That was my first reaction too. On second thoughts it dawned on me
that this was effectively what point-to-point links do all the time.
They simply associate two (possibly arbitrary) IP addresses to each
endpoint. Allowing a point-to-point mode for ethernets shouldn't
screw up the routing tables (or the normal ethenet code).
