Regarding the MIPv6 HA option, it was suggested that client would use
this when at home, and ignore the option if it gets something when not
at home.

I don't understand how a client can know when it's at home, are there
any mechanisms for that?

If it is, it might be more useful to also have DHCP options for things
like POP/IMAP servers etc where you want to learn the addresses when
at home, and keep using the same when away.
