Description

As it is today route-to in pf(4) does not check for any static routes before sending the packet.
In 1.2.3 there were rules added to avoid this but they bring problems since you cannot do anymore reply-to or traffic shaping or follow some other policies.(Possibly not more relevant with the match action?)

The best solution would be for pf(4) to check static route before applying reply-to but there might be performance implications.

The point of policy routing is to override the system routing table, you don't want it to care at all about the routing table. When you specify something in route-to it has to go that route regardless. Many, many instances rely on that functionality, changing that would create a lot of fallout. Also not sure why you would want to?
