While my device is not a Ciena, it has the same issue - and I don't 
think I'm going to be getting attacks against my management interface on 
a 10.0.x.x network.

I want the option to decide for myself.

I'm not all that interested in setting up a management VLAN so this one 
device in my central office will be happy on it's "virtually flat" network.
