What are the disadvantages of using vlan-networks to bridge to containers

Docker

I have the impression that I can use docker to provision containers on demand with their IP addresses being assigned either statically or dynamically via DHCP. How do I best do that using docker +1.10

I read this post https://github.com/docker/docker/blob/master/experimental/vlan-networks.md and I understand that the need to create a bridge on the linux host is removed which simplifies the infrastructure.

However the vlan feature is marked as experimental and I am not sure of the implications of that.
