FWIW it's quite possible to have the BMC and the NOS share the same
physical Ethernet port, this is commonly done on servers. The BMC can
optionally add a VLAN tag to its traffic in case you'd like to separate
it from NOS (fxp0) traffic. If front-plate density really is an issue,
I'd gladly give up the physical RS232 port if that'd get me a BMC behind
the management Ethernet port.
