Ah, oops.
That would also prevent them from being "locally administered" and
hence permissible without registering an entry in the OUI.

However, to reduce someone interpreting the _new_ values that way
instead, could you do one of:
- Adding a comment explaining these are in reverse byte order.
or
- Convert them to the new Array type PCD[1], to make the bytes appear
  in natural order?
