route-to for firewall-initiated traffic stops functioning when default gateway unreachable
opening to track issue we discussed earlier. Where WAN is an Ethernet interface, and OPT1/WAN2 is PPP, when WAN has no link, PPP stops functioning after the ARP cache for the default gateway expires. May affect other scenarios as well.

It should behave correctly now.
A patch was added to allow packets sent from the host to reach pf(4) even though a route cannot be found. This is to allow route-to to forward packets even though the host itself does not have a route to the destination.
