Hi James,

Last Paragraph of Section 6.3.4

"  Similarly,[ADDRCONF] may impose certain restrictions on the prefix
length for
   address configuration purposes.  Therefore, the prefix might be
   rejected by [ADDRCONF] implementation in the host.  However, the
   prefix length is still valid for on-link determination when combined
   with other flags in the prefix option."

It allows for rejection in ADDRCONF as LwIP does, but requires on-link
determination.

~Tim
