Sorry for not being clear.
Indeed I mean a separate LAN and interfaces for "listen_address".

I don't think there is any substantial benefit to doing this, but also
it's impossible: gossip is not separate from the storage protocol.  Of
course, I am assuming you mean just gossip, but if what you actually
mean is the entire storage protocol (listen_address) then yes, there
is benefit to having a dedicated network for that.
