Re: DHCP vs. RA... again.
James - You're right, RAs would not be made obsolete. RAs would
still be used to tell hosts to use DHCPv6; no prefixes or default
router info would be included in RAs in this scenario.

The dhc WG has received a request to develop, on behalf of network

not want the operation of their network to depend on RAs, new
options for DHCPv6 to pass prefix and default router information
to a host. That information would allow a host to get all of its
configuration information from DHCPv6, obviating the use of RAs.
Alas, that wouldn't make RA obsolete. You'd have to deprecate RA
explicitly to make them obsolete. Otherwise, how can nodes learn
that DHCP isn't required?
