No, you're doing it wrong. Those monitoring use cases you mentioned
are already taken care of by the existing design. If you need help
with a particular configuration or setup, you're free to ask about
those particular use cases. But what you've asked so far simply isn't
the WireGuard way of doing things; we offer here a better design than

Then either you're doing things horribly wrong, or WireGuard isn't the
tool for you. AllowedIPs is the essential concept.

If you have questions about how to reach a particular goal, we can
help you. But I believe this particular conversation has reached a
dead end.
