Well, using fe80::1 as default gateway would not be a problem if it
weren't for the existing nonsensical code. Don't know how to say that in
any other way.
Selecting a default router is described in

for the reachability detection.
So if you take a single default router address as input, then the
validation bolis down to sending a Neighbor Solicitation and seeing if
you receive a Neighbor Advertisement back.
