Can you do this by statically configuring the default route and adding a
source address there?  ("If you use this route, perfer *this* address").

I'm not sure whether this is even implemented for IPv6, I've only needed
it for v4 yet - but there, it works.

Of course this defeats the "where is the router?" bit of SLAAC again.
