We need error codes to be defined for Decline message.
AddrInUse - Address already in use.
Is there any other scenario for which the client can
send decline message?
Will the following scenarios contribute to decline message?
- The lease time the client has got is not sufficient for it.
- The client has asked for a prefix A. But the server's
admin policy says that for that client assign address 
with prefix B and it does so.
I think, a mere release is not enough for these above 
situations. This has to be notified to the admin to take
corrective action.
