RFC 4941 is a problem if you want to use to use IPv6 and proxy NDP,
at least until the kernel allow to proxy a network instead of hosts.
This does not seem for now:

Note: proxy NDP is required when your provider gives you a flat /64
(ie its router is in your /64, generally prefix::1 and it tries to talk
directly to any host of your /64 network)
and you want to have subnetworks (one for wifi, one for your DMZ, ...)
