Are new clients (Mac) not already spread as info on the network? So couldn't we not
just snoop dhcp traffic on gateways and spread the info about acknowledged IPs as well?

Speeding up dat address lookup is achieved by snooping all incoming ip
traffic. This especially increases the propability in bla setups that
a gateway into a common backbone network already has a fitting dat entry
to answer incoming ARP requests directly coming from the backbone
network thus further reducing ARP traffic in the mesh.

Marking this as rejected in patchwork due to the conceptual problems pointed
out by Matthias + Linus .
@Marek, I hope this helps to reduce the number of patches you have to go
through in patchwork. But please feel free to change it back when you think
differently about it.
