Hi Bernie,

I'm operating on a link where I don't need to get any configuration information from
RS/RA - everything comes from DHCPv6. So, ideally, I would like to see DHCPv6 provide
an MTU option and a Prefix Information Option - then I would have everything I need
so that I don't have to use a vendor-specific option. Would that be possible?

Thanks - Fred
