Should work just fine if the rest of your network is properly set up, but it's not very useful because the node administrator(s) -- or a bad guy that breaks into the node(s) -- can easily reconfigure the network interfaces as they please. If you're doing this to partition the network for security reasons, set up another vmbr interface on a separate VLAN.

Thank's for feedback,
 I'm not do this for security porpouse and yes is all properly configured
 the vmbr is already configure in a standalone vlan, what I try is use that vmbr like a distributed switch I have think this way for do it;
aboute the security trought the different subnet I should think a "nice" configuration of iptables on nodes;
if you are intrested or have some suggestion to give me will really helpful.
