   This document introduces a generic host-oriented prefix assignment
   mechanism using DHCPv6.  In this new address configuration procedure,
   the prefix is assigned from a DHCPv6 server to hosts through DHCPv6
   message exchanging while the interface identifiers are independently
   generated by the hosts.  It enables both integral address assignment
   and self-generated addresses in one single mechanism, DHCPv6.  It
   also enables stateless address configuration without RA attendance.
