Network: VLAN as Additional Address
It would be nice to be able to add a VLAN as an additional address on an existing interface that is already in use.

I agree, and the reasons that I can think of would be multiples.
1. Those of us using the appliances, cannot add NICs for additional subnets, and this this would be essential to say, segregate VoIP or SAN traffic as but one example;
2. Those of us who do use a regular server(s) for our ASG, still run into physical capacity issues (lack of PCI slots) in addition to being limited to basically 4 ports per internal PCI network multiport adapters - not that larger ones are not available, but their cost gets exponential as the # increases per adapter);
3. Many of us do not have multiple routers on our network, and in our case, only ASG is our LAN router as it were, and throwing money into a routing switch or another router on small LANs is just not a good idea, much less affordable. So, VLANs are the typical answer to achieve a new network, without too much complexity - our router (ASG) just needs a simpler way to do this for us, and this ability would likely be the answer;
