No, it won't work because the /proc/net/arp is ARP cache actually :( I've just
checked it just after I've pressed the send key, from the man page:
This holds an ASCII readable dump of the kernel ARP table used
for address resolutions. It will show both dynamically learned and pre-pro‐
grammed ARP entries.
So it seems, that your solution is the only possible I'm aware of.
