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.
Are the network operators who are expressing "the specific
requirement" that their network not "depend on RA" willing to accept
that they still need RA to signal nodes that DHCP is required for
obtaining prefix information and default router addresses?
Or, do they want RA deprecated completely? If they do, then I
wouldn't like that.
