We don't care.  Loopbacks imply a routing table entry somewhere to make
the packets actually reach this host - and this should ensure it's reaching
only the intended host (or you have dns-root style anycasting)

> As I said in my example, a router is using the IPv6 address on a loopback interface to source packets and a duplicate is detected - the network breaks down.

The upstream router should reject packets coming from a downstream which
is not permitted to use an IPv6 address.

Otherwise, there is no way to ensure uniqueness on non-directly-connected
interfaces - think "loopback on a router on the other side of the planet".
