7-wire 10baseT interface

Assorted ethernet-capable coldfire chips (51cn, 52259) support a reduced 7-wire MAC/PHY interface when 10baseT is sufficient.  Can someone recommend some PHY chips that support this interface, preferably in a nice small package?  (I could only find the AMD chip in 80pin!)

 

This IS different than the RMII spec that I see on other new PHY chips, right?  And none of the (smaller) coldfire chips support RMII ?
