APIPA broadcasts forwarded by route-to
If there is a host with an APIPA IP sending broadcasts that match a route-to rule, the traffic gets forwarded by route-to. antispoof should block that scenario, since that IP subnet isn't defined on the source interface. We should change route-to should never forward anything destined to a broadcast MAC address to prevent such scenarios.
To work around, just add a rule to block APIPA, 169.254.0.0/16. Or ideally don't use overly permissive rulesets, the default rules will not permit this to happen.
block IPv4 link-local. Per RFC 3927, hosts "MUST NOT send the packet to
any router for forwarding", and "any network device receiving such a
packet MUST NOT forward it". FreeBSD won't route it (route-to can override in
some circumstances), so it can't be in use as a real network anywhere with
the possible exception of local-only networks. Unlikely any such situation

Except with no way to disable this rule, this can affect bridged interfaces, and since the rule is processed so far in advance you can not make a rule to allow said traffic without giving up filtering the bridge completely. Also can cause spam to the default block log.
