I don't know why you say that. I can ping 90.3 from the firewall,
and, like I said, if I add a static route for 90.3=gw89.52 on another
host then I can access anything at 90.3 perfectly fine.

No. I don't want everything on 89.52 hitting that outbound
NAT rule. Just stuff from a particular daemon. Thus the
need for another host IP.
