  So ?

  If your box is routing in between VLANs, you are using it wrong way, IMO.

  On the other hand, I could very well put clients in some building into
  an set where I have a switch with FE connection to router, and lots of
  10BaseT ports to clients.  Hard-limiting bandwith to said 10 Mbit.

  I use VLAN truncked systems mainly for network administration, for
  DHCP servers.
