Unfortunately, it's part of a specification that has these requirements.
This is a specification agreed upon by a large consortium that is not
about to change this now.
The fundamental problem from my end is that for the routers that this
protocol is intended for, knowing the the address of the device is not a
problem. For me as a proxy for other devices, I don't know my address.
