If you have enough IP addresses, which for many American households,
is not a viable approach. Additionally, this approach is (in general)
bad for the internet -- IPv4 depletion is happening fast enough without

With Setup B, correct. With Setup A, they're simply bridged onto your
physical interface -- you can't route them without engaging in some
shenanigans like proxy ARP or whatnot.
