BCP for Private OUI / address assignments?

        With the increasing use of virtual machines in my environment, I am
    needing more and more unique mac addresses to assign to the many virtual
    Ethernet devices I have attached and visible to my non-virtual physical
    network. The problem of course is that I don't have an IEEE OUI and
    therefore can't generate guaranteed to be unique addresses, and while
    the possible address space is quite large, it occurs to me that there
    should be something - ala rfc 1918 - for this kind of situation. For now
    however, I just want to know if anyones got something better than 'pick
    an oui out of the air' or 'pick an old dead manufacturer oui', or worse,
    'pick old 10base2 network cards and destroy them, saving the mac'. In
    the future however, I think there's going to need to be some sort of
    extension or modification to dhcp to accomodate virtual machines in this
    regard (of not having a manufacturer assigned addresses for the virtual
    ethernets).

    Mike-
