The original address *is* the real address.  NAT breaks IP's design and 
is a very mixed blessing.  NAT isn't needed nor used with IPv6, and 
being in IPv4's twilight years, an argument predicated on NAT is not 
very convincing.

I feel that describing the patch as routing is misleading, as it 
performs only outbound link selection.  It fosters an expectation of 
bi-directionality, and that is not the case.  It will often result in 
asymmetric routes.

Is it possible you are trying to solve a problem which has already been 
solved, for example by IGP?
