Because it works by magic, not works by intent. There's no guarantee
that a STA device will let you re-program its MAC address.

As long as an attempt to set the MAC address returns an error
that is meaningful (ENOTSUP?), that is fine.  I still believe
you should be able to tell the clone device to do this, and
have it call down through (all the way) to the actual device
driver.  Having to jump through hoops trying to configure
lagg on a cloned device is ugly.  But at least it is possible,
so I'm extremely happy for that :-)

It also confuses people when they believe you can setup things like
bridged VMs and they don't work across wifi but do across ethernet.

Ok, thanks for the info.
