That's a pretty old note.  The 2004/522 support for logical interfaces
required the user to come up with client IDs for each logical
interface.  That would make it somewhat hard to use with Zones.

The code that I added for CR 6386331 upgrades that existing logical
interface support so that you don't have to forge up your own client
IDs manually.  That makes it ideal for use with Zones.

The part that's missing is allowing DHCP to be configured in zonecfg
and correctly handled by zoneadmd.  I don't see how zoneadm itself
could be at all involved.

You're looking at the result of CR 6386331 here.

I see.  I think that just pushes the issue elsewhere, as you have to
deal with (potentially) very large numbers of MAC addresses.
