This is against the IPv6 model. Interfaces have unique addresses.
Same link-local address assigned to multiple interfaces is no problem.

Using MainIP on a loopback interface, and use it as main address, will do.
Or use MainIP on whatever interface. Problem on this would be an interface
down condition, this would disable the MainIP.
