+        <span class="since">Since 6.6.0</span>, one can force libvirt to keep the
+        provided MAC address when it's in the reserved VMware range by adding a
+        <code>type="static"</code> attribute to the <code><mac/></code> element.
+        Note that this attribute is useless if the provided MAC address is outisde of
+        the reserved VMWare ranges.
