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.
