  You can't do that right now.  Addressing that for 3.1.x might be a possibility.  We're looking into fixing some of the state machine issues to make this easier.

  The main issue is that originating a CoA packet is not quite the same as proxying.  So for a proxy, we can wait for a response.  For a CoA packet, we can't.

  Fixing this requires changes to the server core.  I'd prefer to wait until that's been cleaned up a bit before adding new behaviour.
