Multiple MAC addresses?

Odd question:

Is it possible to assign multiple MAC addresses to a single nic?

For example, I know its very simple to set up multiple ip addresses on a given nic thru virtual interfaces. Can you then assign a unique MAC address to each of those interfaces?

dunno about linux, but at least in windows advanced server it is possible... it is the way that the MS load balancing works...
so, it is teoretically and in some case possible...
but don't know about fedora.
by the way ... why are you interested in such a configuration?
