I've been bugged by that in the past, too.  I wanted to allow the user
to do this:

ifconfig vlan0 vlan native vlan-if fxp0

And that would do what you expect to do.  Otherwise stuff can go wrong
when you mix an interface with an address, a bridge and vlans on that

It should actually be very easy to do, I just never got around taking
the time to do it.

Any taker?
