We are talking about connecting multiple routers over ethernet so they can 
behave as a SINGLE olsr node. This way MPR selection can be done much more 
efficient because you don't need MPRs to forward over the ethernet (it will 
happen transparently).

Of course the routing tables of the ethernet connected devices must be 
synchronized to prevent local routingloop storms.
