I was afraid that may be the case - The issue I have with that approach is 
how do you avoid manually mapping extensions to mac addresses in the 
dialplan?  Assuming I have a PRI with 100did and I want to use the last 4 
digits of the DID as the internal extension, I want to use something like 
below to handle the bulk of calls:

exten => _XXXXXXXX,1,Dial(SIP/${EXTEN:4},20)

How can this be accomplished if SIP usernames are mac addresses?, it would 
seem to me that sip.conf is the correct place to map an extension to a 
device, otherwise I would have an extensions.conf with a manual entry for 
each extension making updating it a chore.
