Code-wise, it wouldn't, but the syntax and semantics of /etc/ethers are
not defined by dnsmasq; it's a system file that's potentially used by
other tools and I'm not at liberty to extend the format.
It's very easy to move you host declarations into a dnsmasq-only
configuration file, see dhcp-hostsfile in the dnsmasq man page.
