What? Do you run the olsrd with a link-local as MID?
why not?

imho zhis should be no problem, as only the direct neighbours really needs
to use the MID adress
(you could with actual olsrd set the ttl of mids to 2, #1 to stop mids to be
flooded further than needed)

the minimum requirement for olsr ips, is a unique originator id (routeable
or not)
and interface adresses that are unique (within a 2 hop neighbour set)

above minimum may not make much sense, but if u add hnas, or have at least
an routeable originator-id it makes more sense.
and if not u should have routers (that u can reach only from their
neighbours) that will still route traffic fine,.. (as they still have an
working olsr setting vlaid routes,..)


#1 and maybe even disabling might work, (with similar same results as
setting a ttl of 1 (as the sourceaddr of hellos are used like mids)) but you
will break the 2hop neighboursset afair,..
