While preparing for the DHC WG meeting, I found these issues with

As DHCPv6 doesn't support broadcasting, you're really only able to support
multicasting. Not sure if this should be pointed out early in the draft?
And, perhaps the option (in the DHCPv6 case) should not use "broadcast" in
its name?

RFC 3315, section 8, specifically prohibits compression. You should follow
that rule.

Informative is misspelling in this document as well (inforamtive).
