A couple of issues came out of the discussion of the prefix delegation 
option in Minneapolis:

* Disallow reassigning delegated prefix on upstream link (and
   should this restriction be configurable?)
* Allow use of DHCP on NBMA links by reserving a well-known
   anycast address for client->server messages
* Devise a mechanism for prefix delegation through a two-message
* Write a specification for a simplified version of DHCP that
   meets the requirements for prefix delegation; this simplified
   protocol needs a name that doesn't include the word "Host"

I'll kick off discussion on these issues in separate messages on the 
dhcwg@ietf.org mailing list.
