Not really. Changing it would have a fairly high impact (eg Dom0 and all
Linux DomU's on the system would have to support the higher number or
all sorts of strange things would happen).

The only thing you could thinking about defining as a bug is that
netback didn't complain about it anywhere, it just pretended everything
was okay and put corrupt packets onto the bridge.
