MAC acl

Hello,

some Cisco switches support MAC access lists on ingress traffic only. I'm
trying to understand why it doesn't make sens (impossible?) to implement MAC
ACLs on *egress* traffic. Is it because classification is always done prior
a switch makes forwarding decision and places frames in outgoing queues ?
