Hmm... ok.

I will test this on my VMs... just using linklocal-IPs on the interfaces and 
one global-unique address on the localhost interface would be a great way to 
configure an OLSR node.

So IPv6 packets with a global-unique scope destination address would choose 
the localhost global unique IP as their source address ?
