IPv6 hosts using Stateless Address Autoconfiguration are able to
configure their IPv6 address and default router
settings automatically.  However, further settings are not available.
If these hosts wish to configure their DNS, NTP, or other
specific settings automatically, the stateless variant of the Dynamic
Host Configuration Protocol for IPv6 (DHCPv6) could be used.  This 
combination of Stateless Address Autoconfiguration and stateless
DHCPv6 could be used quite commonly in IPv6 networks.  However, hosts
using this combination currently have no means by which to be
informed of changes in stateless DHCPv6 option settings; e.g., the
addition of a new NTP server address, a change in DNS search paths,
or full site renumbering.  This document is presented as a problem
statement from which a solution should be proposed in a subsequent
