Because I don't see a network implementation which can works with 2 interfaces on a bridge

eth0 Network1----brige-----network2 eth1
            Tap interfaces

eth0 and eth1, must be on physical differents switchs/network or this will cause network loop.
(Or we must use bonding to be on the same physical network).
I never see this implementation in rhev or xenserver.
Always 1 bridge - 1 eth or 1 bond.

>>A bridge can have several options in /etc/network/interface. We need to 
>>use the same options for the new bridge? 

Yes I think we must use the sames options, this make sense. (stp=off the more important, don't know the other options).
