Array port layout in SAN Switch 8/40.

Given the 8/40 is one ASIC, is there any reason to spread out EVA controller ports across non-sequential ports? In the Brocade 3800 each 8 port group was one ASIC so it made some sense to avoid putting all ports on one chip, but I cant see that anymore.

Thanks.
