We hacked something like this many years ago in working manet stub networks and it worked but had some performance limitations. 
I presented a slide somewhere in manet many years ago and the basic description was in a few reports and a book chapter.

The unicast autoconf builds out naturally at the connected edges for the stub area case which was the nice feature.
