Not really. Routing is the point. But as NAT seems to be performed before
routing in FreeBSD+ipfilter, the packets are sent to the interface, the
NATed addresses are belonging to.

Manuel, why is there the restriction to the WAN interface? Why any
restriction to interfaces and IP-addresses anyway? A simple 'arp -s
hostname hw_addr pub' hasn't such a restriction. What I would like to
see, is a table hostname|hw_addr|description, so that I for myself can
define what MAC address to use (needed for VRRP for example).
