Perhaps, but I think you are thinking about the function incorrectly. The 
peer address shouldn't be looked at as a restriction, but rather as a hint 
of where to send traffic to reach the peer if no traffic has been received 
from it. In that light, wg's behavior makes sense. The last IP address 
the peer was seen at, is normally the best place to look for it later.
