...exactly.  Is it possible to construct a simple test by which to judge an
option as appropriate for inclusion in the base document?  For example:

(1) is it required for implementation or deployment of a crucial service
(for example, DNS or SLP)

(2) is it essential to implement mandatory or highly desirable functionality
(such as authentication or security)?

(3) is it necessary to support transition from IPv4 to IPv6?

(4) is it currently widely deployed with DHCPv4?

(5) has the option been stably defined for DHCPv6 for at least several draft
revisions?
