Hi DHC WG Members,

Thanks for your support/comments on this document. We have published a new version after taking care of the review comments from the last WGLC. Following are the main points which are clarified in this document:-

1.) Explicitly mentioned what Relay Agents are going to include in Client Link-layer Address option based upon the text suggested by Ted and other WG members.

2.) Also added some text on the behavior of the DHCPv6 server in case of directly connected clients.
