You could run a custom version of the bridge driver to enable bridging
of frames sent to the bridge-management MAC addresses.  Some folks
have talked about doing similar things to enable bridging of STP.

Doing that with STP makes a bit more sense to me (since there are
valid networks that could be constructed that way).  But you'll be
breaking a pretty fundamental assumption of LACP....
