Getting what I said earlier onto this thread, I think we should be discussing the
LLA-based PD scheme specified in:

What is unique and compelling about this scheme is that it brings down two birds with
one stone; in a single RS/RA exchange, the mobile node receives both 1) an IPv6 PD,
and 2) an LLA that is guaranteed to be unique on the link without having to apply DAD.

The idea for this LLA-based PD scheme is as follows:

1) The requesting router creates a temporary LLA using RFC4941(bis) and sets a prefix length
indication inside the LLA itself. The RR then uses the LLA as the IPv6 source address of an RS
message to send to the delegating router.

2) When the delegating router receives the RS, it sees that the IPv6 source is an RFC4941(bis)
address with a non-zero prefix length indication. The DR then coordinates with the DHCPv6
server to request a PD of the length indicated by the RR.

3) When the DR receives the PD from the DHCPv6 server, it creates an OMNI LLA by
embedding the delegated prefix in the IID of fe80::/64, e.g., as fe80::2001:db8:1:2.
The DR then sets a prefix length indication in the OMNI LLA, and sets the LLA as the
destination address of an RA message to send back to the RR.

4) When the RR receives the RA message, it sees that the destination is an OMNI LLA
with a non-zero prefix length. The RR then uses the embedded prefix within the OMNI
LLA as its delegated prefix, and regards the Router Lifetime as the time at which the
delegated prefix needs to be renewed.
