Hi List,
I am strongly in favour of including DNS option in base draft. The way we are
proceeding on DHCPv6 base draft, I am sure that the separate option draft will
also take quite sometime to become PS/RFC. In such a situation, implementation
of DHCPv6 without DNS option will be meaningless. DNS option is immediate
requirement for IPv6 deployment, since most of the applications use DNS. 
	In one sentence: DHCPv6 is LAME without DNS option.

Cheers,
Jitesh
