Bonjour can be fixed for the IPv6 environment simply by changing it's packets
to be sent to ff05::... instead of ff02::...

I presume that the CeroWRT (and any other properly functioning router) can be
configured so that ff05:: packets are delivered to all interfaces within the site
however the administrator defines "within the site".
