Yes, sets would be nice. However I wonder if this case isn't a bug
in any case:
Consider these VLANS:

Add them to a bridge and the bridge will pass pkgs between them, right?
However no real switch I know would do that because they are on
the same physical interface.
I think the bridge needs to check the physical interface too and don't
forward pkgs back on the same physical interface.
