1.5.2 incorrectly refuses certain mac addresses. DEADBEEF0000 is also refused on Windows hosts.

The full list of illegal MAC addresses, that are Multicast/Broadcast is listen below:  http://www.cavebear.com/archive/cavebear/Ethernet/multicast.html

I believe, that VirtualBox must warn the user, if one tries to use those.
