Why vMotion Enabled vmkernel port is required for FT?

Preferably, each host has separate 1 GbE NICs for FT logging traffic and VMotion. The reason for recommending separate NICs is that the creation of the Secondary VM is done by migrating the Primary VM with VMotion. This can produce significant traffic on the VMotion NIC and could affect VMware FT logging traffic if the NICs are shared.
