I dont know of any routing daemons that are taking advantage of the
alias interfaces today. This being said, i think that the fact that a
lot of protocols that need IP-ization are coming up eg VLANs; you should
see a good use for this. Out of curiosity for the VLAN people, how do you
work with something like Zebra?
One could have the route daemon take charge of management of these
devices, a master device like "eth0" and a attached device like "vlan0".
They both share the same ifindex but different have labels.
Basically, i dont think there would be a problem.

cheers,
