Connectivity is the job of the routing protocol.

A partitioned mesh would mean that the allocated prefixes don't get
freed for the next 30-60 minutes.

In theory we could add some kind of feedback from the routing...
something like "if no route exists to node X for time Y, assume its
gone" but that would introduce a circular dependency between routing
an HNCP.
