Hello,

is there a reason why we cannot place an DHCPv6-relay on every node for its 
neighbors ? Each node requesting an address/prefix will send out an IP 
datagram with an anycast destination an a linklocal source, which will be 
forwarded by its neighbors (with a unicast) to the DHCPv6-server.

After a node has it's address it switch from DHCP-client to DHCP-relay mode, 
to allow other nodes to connect through this node to the server.
