Yes, for large clusters, if cores do not maintain addresses of all the
end-stations in whole cluster - then only way to get BCN back to ES, is
to send them to ingress rbridge-address and then have that ingress
rbridge forward BCN to end station with appropriate ES address.
If so, ingress rbdridge address seems to be requirement to me.

You cannot look-up the inner MAC address, because in the core of the
network you don't keep the inner MAC addresses in the table. Correct?
This is a clear reason while you need the ingress RBridge address.
