I'm waiving this question, thanks to emdete who enligtened me on IRC channel:
<dottedmag> I am trying to snatch several MAC addresses for OpenInkpot
and avoid buying whole "manufacturer id" which is expensive and
gives 2^24 addresses.
<emdete> dottedmag: doesn't make much sense because you wont see those
on an real ethernet... agree?
<dottedmag> emdete: it makes sense for all kinds of network device
<dottedmag> emdete: e.g. OS X network manager creates new device each
time device is connected if MAC is random.
<emdete> sure, agree. but you don't need official ones.
<emdete> it's just that you need a static one - that may still be random
and unofficial because no clashes
