ICMP ping replies during systemwide outage

During the outage that customers on Echostar 19 experienced recently, I noticed that pings sent to IPv6 addresses assigned to HN customer equipment continued to receive replies even when the equipment was offline. The RTT for the ping response decreased substantially, indicating that a device at the gateway was responding to ping requests instead of a device at the customer premises.

This is an unexpected situation and prevents network monitoring systems from accurately determining whether a site is down or not. Can one of the moderators here submit a feature request to engineering to have this behavior changed?
