Yes, but however this will change behavior for a lot of situations
not just the one you are interested in.

The base ipv6_chk_addr() test has been there for more than a decade
and I'm not comfortable with changing this logic until I see you
write up a full audit of all of the use cases of icmp6_send() and
how they are impacted by your changes.
