Setting the top bit is fine with me too (we are currently setting the top two bits in one place but none in another).  Also, these addresses are only used for traffic actually generated by an OVS interface, not every VM (this is different from VMware), so the chance of a collision isn't too high.

I think the worst of all worlds is one without children's laughter.  But this is a close second.  I agree with Ben that your proposal is good.  I'd also like it if we used a constant bit or two for dynamically generated ones.
