Ole, I do not understand what you are asking.
network A is allocating to rotuer B over a point-to-point link a prefix. 
  (The router might be a 3GPP UE.  It might be a fixed wireless RG. 
Doesn't matter.)
If there is a network behind B, the B can use that prefix for that 
network.  Obviously, if it is multi-hop network and we want to get 
multiple levels of allocation, then other tools are needed.  That was 
the homenet problem.
This approach does not claim to solve the whole homenet problem.  It 
solves a simple and common problem.
