I'm pretty sure modern Linux allows you to have more than one type of bond active at a time. I have no idea how to do it, though, so you'll have to research it. I'm fine if this is going to be a temporary limitation, but as danpb points out, you might want to bond differently on machines with lots of NICs.
You should be able to alias each of the bonding types: alias storage0 bonding alias virtnet0 bonding option storage0 mode=2 option virtnet0 mode=4 This, I believe, will give us the two bonded interfaces with the different bonding strategies.
Yes, this question is very appropriate too. Again, I'm not saying we have to support this right now, but we need to be conscious of it. There are 3 pieces at work here (bridges, VLAN's, and bonds), which means there are 9 ways you could do things: VLAN's on top of bonds on top of bridges, bridges on top of bonds on top of VLAN's, etc. We have to figure out which combinations are completely insane, which are valid and make sense, and then make sure we can handle those. Yes, this is complicated :(.
