If you participated in the previous WGLC or want to participate now, please review the (short) draft and send comments to the mailing list if you have any.  Also please indicate whether you support advancing the draft at this time or not.

I support this draft as-is and hope it is expeditiously moved forward 
both within the IETF and for implementation by vendors of both DHCPv6 
Relay Agents and Servers.

This issue is holding back broader deployment of IPv6, especially in 
enterprise environments, where MAC address tracking is a very common 
part of network security and management practice. This will align DHCPv6 
with such practices and hopefully remove one more road block in the way 
of deployment of IPv6 in many environments.
