Why would a P2P GO interface be in a bridge? The P2P specification
explicitly describes cross connection to use "any mechanism above layer
2" and as such, layer 2 bridging may not be a suitable mechanism for
this. And even if this were allowed, it would be unclear how the new
interface would get added to the bridge.
