Maybe my wording is a little off.

I do have independent sessions from FW1 and FW2 to upstream routers.

The problem, I suspect, is more to do with overlapping of IP ranges being 
advertised to upstreams, and hence traffic never making it back to FW2 because 
FW1 picks it up, hence the desire to have an effective way to tell OpenBSD 
"send all localhost originating traffic from lo2 because the IPs on lo2 are 
exclusive to that host".
