there's going to be an interesting problem.
I expect that most home networks for the foreseeable future will be
well-served by just a single bridged 802.1 network. A significant,
and non-ignorable fraction of them will need to run an interior
routing protocol behind the residential Internet gateway. One
scenario is the remote worker whose office network is required by
policy [or tax law] to be firewalled from their personal network.
Other potentially more common scenarios spring to mind, but sadly, I'm
unable to offer a disquisition on them at this time.
