just a perspective on naming and at the risk of bike shedding.

rfc3315 uses client, relay, server
rfc3633 requesting router and delegating router

rfc3633 was written with the expectation that there was no relay, this was for the purpose of route injection.
actual deployments use relays, and there isn't any special function done on the delegating router, and no need to have a special name for it.

in 3315bis with prefix delegation being integrated fully into the main DHCP RFC, I don't see a new to maintain the separate terms. just use client, relay and server.
