Even on a server lan you'll occasionally want to plug in a PC for

Actually, nobody should be plugging any random device into my server
LANs, and I certainly don't want to encourage it by having it work (even
if just for IPv6).

When I send someone on site to do work for me, I don't want to have to
prepare excessive instructions on how to connect their laptop to the
local LAN. I want to say, "This switch, this port" and then move on to
the actual work I sent them there to do.

You're welcome to run your shop your way.
