I'm afraid so. I've worked on a good many networks where everything is
in one VLAN; a common argument for the practice is IP assignment
granularity. Rarely do I find MAC ACLs in place at the switch. (I'm
actually trying to remember a specific installation that had MAC
filtering set up by a prior engineer... I'm _sure_ I've encountered at
least a couple.)
Note that these observations are for small- and mid-sized networks.
Maybe things are better in the larger networks. YMMV.
