GLBP for 5th router

i have a problem with GLBP.

As GLBP is intended only for 4 routers you cannot use 5 routers.

My problem is that when one of the 4 routers fail and you are not able to recover it,

you have to replace it with new hardware.

This new hardware will have new MAC and the AVG has registered all 4 MACs even if one of them is not valid anymore.

Is there a way of how to get the new router into the GLBP without reloading the GLBP group and without longer downtime?

The new router can be an AVG but not AVF.

My solution for this is to remove all except the new one, and then join them again.

Is there any better solution?
