Yes, that is exactly what needs to be done.  Somewhat analoguous to
userspace ARP daemons.

Note that it's a little bit more complicated than you make it, since for
decent performance you need to queue the packet that couldn't be routed
(for a limited period of time), in order to avoid discarding the first
packet of every new flow.
