Rather than supporting something like epair(4) directly, I believe the plan is 
to allow connecting a bhyve VM to a user-space virtual switch on the host. 
Neither is currently available to my knowledge.

For a NAT setup today you should be able to add your VM's tap(4) interface as 
the only member of a bridge on the host and assign an IP address to the bridge 
interface. Services like DHCP for this virtual subnet would need to also be 
configured on the host in addition to whatever NAT you want to use.

For an internal-only network between two or more VMs on the host you could also 
just use a bridge containing only the VM tap adapters. If you don't want the 
host to participate in the network then don't put an IP on the bridge.
