Yes. In fact, an explicit marker telling that there indeed
was a proxy would be quite useful for SEND.

Hmm.... I thought the idea of ND proxies was to avoid a complicated
L3 device. If we need something like a routing protocol, maybe
its time to pull out the proxy thing and replace it with a real
L3 device?
