I hate to complicate matters by adding more error codes, but what about adding something like "DUIDneeded"? (This is based on the change from MUST to SHOULD for the client sending a DUID in an Information-Request).

Note however that if a client is capable / willing to provide a DUID, why didn't it provide it in the original request? Therefore, returning this error may not be meaningful to clients that don't want to generate DUID since they won't re-issue the request with a DUID. Though it might add in diagnosing problems when clients can't get configuration information.

Open issue from WG last call:

* What status codes may a server send in response to an
   Information-Request message?

I propose: Success, UnspecFail, AuthFailed, PoorlyFormed, OptionUnavail
