I have also noticed this problem, and I believe your LAST proposed
solution is the best one. Clearly nothing should be done to stop
link-local addresses from being used on the LAN: DNS-SD is designed to
be usable on a network with only link-local addresses. It's only their
reflection that's a problem.
