This could cause some arp related issues at the other end? What if the
remote end point updates its arp entry because it thinks the remote
endpoints address has changed (as it has a direct route to the network
i.e. it has an IP in 10.200.1/24).
It may be worth the original OP investigating if_lagg as it may provide
some better solutions.
