Cisco supports logical routers( ala VDC's in the NX/OS line), it's purely
managed at the application level though.  Logical Routers(or VDC's) are
roughly equivalent to the set of patches you have put forward though,
especially with how the netns completely separates the processes.  This is
the reason why in our OOB conversation with Vincent that we argued for
calling the construct something else besides VRF's.  To much baggage with
expectations on behavior.  This is the same reason that we are calling our
'VRF' implementation 'MRF' instead.

I wouldn't attempt to match the Cisco cli since you are going to put
forward a patch to name this feature domain's.
