You cannot restrict (in protocol) that two boxes would not be 
deployed -- so what is the technical background to option 1)?

Actually that's pretty close to what I'm saying: recommend against 
deploying more than one box (or even forbid it completely), but if the 
user deploys two boxes in any case, this would still work just as long 
as you don't build topologies in which routing loops would exist.
I don't see that happening in the home networks.
