I think you're over compliating it.

We have an address on a prefix.
We want to send to an address not on the prefix.
We have a default route.

Given these conditions I don't see any alternative but to send the packet. Otherwise it's not a default route - it's a route that might or might not send your packet.

I'll wait until I see the default v6 route come back (might be a few
days - I don't know what triggers that, it certainly isn't simply every

It *should* be each RA that advertises itself as a default router.
If you use dhcpcd, then `dhcpcd -n` should be enough to force a soliciation and get the default route back. If not, try restarting dhcpcd and file a bug with me.

and then monitor the network while I try a ssh to or a
cvs update, or similar.

OR just ping6
I don't think IPv6 is entirely setup correctly - it's like a blackhole when I ssh.
