Ether types...

Would someone kindly mail me a copy of the current list of valid Ethernet
types. I know it's out there somewhere and I've seen it fly by every so often.
I'm sitting and looking at a dump of Ethernet packets and I'm seing a couple
of strange things. Trying to find out what the packets are.

Anyone happen to know if there're legitimate reasons for sending to yourself
onan Ethernet? That is, Ethernet packets where the source and the destination
address are identical? Seems pointless since as far as I know, you cannot read
packets you yourself transmitted off of the wire..... Am I wrong?
