The route-to argument is meant to be the address of the next hop (usable
for an arp lookup, for instance). Using a link-local address there has no
defined meaning yet.
We'll have to test whether the suggested patch, using nd6_output(),
keeps the existing semantics (where the argument is a next-hop address)
intact. If it does, I think supporting link-local addresses as arguments
is a good idea.
