Isaac,

> Need a favor, (if you have it handy) could you please point to a configuration by Cisco router (any of the product type would do) which sends out the RA lifetime 0 and reachable time 10 seconds and how commonly (practically) that is used? (Especially in the context of modern global networks where customers want things done autonmously/automatically with the least number of knobs possible)

A quick search would have found that information for you.
Basically:
interface Ethernet0
 ipv6 nd ra lifetime 0
 ipv6 nd reachable-time 10000

Best regards,
Ole
