The only sane way I found was to use the server endpoints as agreed
identities, i.e. if you're binding to, then use
that as your identity when connecting. This lets the other router talk
to you.

But mostly router-to-router seems like a bad pattern. I'd rather do
two connections, one dealer-router in each direction, so each peer
plays "server" and "client" cleanly. Just simpler to understand.
