Why should this be illegal?

You will run into problem when you try  to  connect  both  interfaces
(having  athe same MAC address) to the same subnet, but why would you
want to do this?

For a common example just look at Sun workstations:  they  _all_  are
using  the  same MAC address for all ethernet interfaces there are in
one box...
