Summary: This draft is ready for publication as a BCP RFC.




Major issues:



Minor issues:


Nits/editorial comments:

Small question: In section 6 last bullet "While [RFC3633] assumes that the
DHCPv6 client is a router, DHCPv6 PD itself does not require that the client
forward IPv6 packets not addressed to itself, and thus does not require that
the client be an IPv6 router as defined in [RFC2460]."

Is this a good practice to recommend?

Also I understand that in the here the recommendation is that all IPv6
packets will be addressed to the DHCPv6 client (not a router) and this is
why he will not forward them.
