Sounds rather wire-ful to me ... :)
It's not an Ethernet, which is why it doesn't masquerade as one.
At least, not more than necessary to interop with at least one set
of Win32 drivers. (And one hopes, more in the future.)
Until there's some way that network interfaces can expose more
information to sysadmin tools, it seems smarter to set things up
so they can't confuse USB and Ethernet links. Scripts can "know"
the various differences, and accomodate more. One example
that's come up: an MTU closer to two USB 1.1 frames will
give better throughput at negligible cost, other than precluding
some bridging setups involving N-BaseT.
