Hi EdorFaus

hmm... no good reason. I think most people here use UDEV and /etc/network/interfaces
no needs static MAC address when use those two method.

we talk about the static MAC before, not settle down yet. I remember we talked something 
in IRC(#qi-hardware at freenode) even multi same MAC address connect to one network, 
will not cause any problem. 

so I think we can use static MAC in future.
