ah, OK, 
now i got the point.

It seem's netBSD is going another way then Linux or other Free/OpenBSD here - this was new to me.

Is there any reason why NetBSD does not offer such a feature?

I agree that a bridge primarily is a "level 2 tool", but we have several applications/appliances where the ability to configure an IP (level 3) on a bridge interface (level 2) is very handy (as often to find even in other, much more famous applications) as it easily can be done even before / without any interface bound to the bridge. 

One of my targets in mind is to migrate some of that "apps" to NetBSD in the future for different reasons. So it would be nice to understand the reason[s] behind this difference. 

sorry for the noise so far.

many thanks and cheerioh,
