    I was merely talking about _answering_ ARP requests on all interfaces.

    What happens on outgoing active ARPs is a different thing. Reasonable
    choices would be either the prefered source address of the route or
    the local interface's address. I must admit I don't have a strong
    opinion on what the better behaviour of those is, but neither of them would
    seem particularly wrong to me.
