Sorry for the chipping in,

What you describe Julian, works as expected. The problem is
that this can work in a static setup, where one builds the physical
topology and kldloads the ng_ether module. I am very interested
in doing network simulations using vimage/vnet, thus want to
be able to create and destroy topologies as wanted. Can I
somehow overcome this?

Thanks, Nikos
