Hi,

The INFORMATION-REQ/REPLY messages make DHC6 really neat in 
terms of extensibility. But wouldn't it be great to also have  
unidirectional (i.e, no REPLY required) information indication 
messages (INFO-IND), such that information exchange patterns 
as below can take place:

` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` `
`DHC6C         DHC6S`
` -+-            -+-`
`  |   INFO-IND   | `
`  +------------->| ` 
`  |   INFO-IND   | `
`  +------------->| `
`  |   INFO-IND   | `
`  +------------->| `
`  |   SVR-RECFG  | `
`  |<-------------+ `
`  |              | `
` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` 

DHC6C - dhcpv6 client
DHC6S - dhcpv6 server

Such patterns may be useful for on-the-fly configurations,
especially in the mobile case. All IMHO, okay, so don't
whack me if I said something out of place...
