OK yeah, that's also a good reason :)

In that case, I'm curious to find out if you find that setting the host0 interface up in 
the container also brings the vb-dahlia interface up on the host?

I think it would be best-practice to set the network configuration inside the 
container, if possible. That way, you can move the container from host to host 
without needing to perform any additional configuration on each host other than 
starting the container. After all, the container's IP is related to the container, not to 
the host, so it makes sense for its configuration to live with the container.
