I'm guessing that's a point-to-point interface. So you don't need the next hop's

classic example is PPP.

Okay, that sort of makes sense, but it seems like it's impossible for the DHCP server to know what that interface is called, and easy to just have the client set up the routing since it knows what it's doing.
