Actually, I had a little debate where I tried to convince them that the
current behaviour is really just proxy arp -- basically, since the the
system replies for an IP that isn't on that directly connected network
(ie, assigned to that device), it is by definition proxy arp (per RFC
1009) -- but they didn't like that idea too much :)  

Personally, I wish they would have agreed, not so much for the sake of
LVS, but because it has caused major problems on my network in the past.
