What exactly do you mean by 2-hop neighbours ? Shouldn't link-local addresses 
only be used by 1-hop neighbours ? Also would setting MID TTL on the source 
node (the one using link-local addresses on its interfaces and therefore 
generating MID messages) be enough and why not ?

All in all, I am wondering what kind of problems one can expect in a mesh 
containing both "link-local-interface" nodes and "old" nodes as gradual 
deployment is always needed when there are existing nodes in the mesh.
