Description

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Connect to a testbed router over TCP.
  2. Send a prefix registration command for /localhost/nfd/rib.
  3. Disconnect.

Expected: the prefix registration command should be rejected because /localhost Interest cannot be forwarded to a remote router.
Actual: the prefix registration command succeeds; after disconnecting, HTTP status page stops working and shows 504 error.

Although the reason this registration could succeed is #2856, this issue is not a duplicate of #2856.
Management should prevent /localhost registration to a non-local nexthop.
Management should prevent its own prefixes from being registered to somewhere else or being unregistered.
