Whoa careful, the "why" question will turn into the "why don't you.."
question soon :)

If all traffic needs to be tagged with a given vlan id, then it should be
possible for all traffic using eth0 to be tagged with that vlan id.

RHEL can do this btw. The network-scripts support it. I wondered how to do
this in Ubuntu LTS.
