okay, i dissapeared this point of view.
Of course we cannot drop this.

I remember having trouble in the past with this during another project, 
i think it was if there where two subnets on same physical interface 
(agree, that isn't a normal situation, but existing).
Problem was that ip-stack used as source address always the first e.g. 
the lower one defined on the interface, this doesn't happen with the 
passive flag.

I will double check this again and resend some V2.
