Sorry if I wasn't clear before, but all of the rc.conf variables
should be prepended with static_arp_ (as opposed to just arp_). So
rather than arp_args you'd want static_arp_args. I realize you're not
using set_rcvar() but it's still a good idea to do that for
consistency's sake, as well as to make it easier for admins to sort
stuff, etc. Please make sure you change that in the man page as well.

Other than that it looks fine to me.

Silly question that I'm sorry just occurred to me right now, have you
tested this with IPv6? :)
