That one could go either way, honestly.

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.
