That one could go either way, honestly. It's not nearly as big an issue

Just giving two IPs out is trivial, but the particular peculiar way I
want to do it is giving me minor headaches.

If a private IP gets assigned to a customer's router, the customer's
Internet connection won't work, and I'll get calls. If a public IP gets
assigned to a CPE, it's annoying, wasteful, and (in extreme cases) a
network security risk. And based on just a MAC, I don't know how to
differentiate CPE and customer gear.

This may be difficult to solve with the CB3, but (hopefully) slightly
more do-able with other CPE that's (hopefully) not quite as silly.
