        Title           : Link-Layer Addresses Assignment Mechanism for DHCPv6

   In certain environments, e.g., large scale virtualization
   deployments, new devices are created in an automated manner.  Such
   devices may have their link-layer addresses assigned in an automated
   fashion.  With sufficient scale, the likelihood of a collision using
   random assignment without duplication detection is not acceptable.
   Therefore an allocation mechanism is required.  This draft proposes
   an extension to DHCPv6 that allows a scalable approach to link-layer
   address assignments where preassigned link-layer address assignments
   (such as by a manufacturer) are not possible or unnecessary.
