Some time ago, Dan Wing proposed (I don't remember where) that RAs could contain DHCP options that are worth advertising to all hosts.
If generalized, this would permit to avoid reinventing in RAs options that are available in DHCPv6, and yet make the DHCPv6 protocol to be in general unnecessary.
The simplicity of this approach is IMHO very attractive.
