I think this will introduce a new level of complexity for the
administrator. (I already missed a configuration because gust firewall
has to be enabled in VM>firewall and in VM>hardware>network interface)
Comparing with other vendors "eg chekpoint" the firewalling is managed
at "datacenter" level  not going into server by server or vlan by
What is done at interface level is for eg antispoofing filtering.
I'll have look into pfsense and openstack to see how they are doing.
