As this seems to make the proxy_arp more intelligent, maybe you should
take a look at:
(which, at the moment, specifies proxy arp/ND for both IPv4 and IPv6)
and see how close our implementation is wrt. to that spec, whether the
above spec is better or worse, or whether there may be room for
improvement otherwise as well?
