I'm not sure at what point we should stop associating a switch which calls itself "Ethernet" with something applicable to SDN. Certainly it would be smart to allow an SDN node to operate as an Ethernet switch, however SDN also certainly goes beyond just Ethernet.

I think with Tomahawk and Xplaint we are just starting to see new directions in Ethernet switch chips.
