6to4 relays cause some rather interesting problems, especially relating to
quality of service (too few of them at the moment, leading to huge
delays connecting to 6to4 nodes from some areas).

No it *definitely* isn't, or I've misunderstood the intent. What has been
proposed is something like 'when application requests and address, get it
from somewhere, after application exists, return it'. That's very far
from DHCPv4. Add the ports option to the stew and you have a mess..
Running DHCPv4 over DSTM (with reasonable address lifetimes etc.) would
sound much better than currently proposed.
