I read this draft, I think similar issue is also being discussed/solved
by draft-dec-dhcpv6-route-option-05 as well.


I see that you are proposing to have lifetime and MAC address in the
route option. Why do we want to communicate the lifetime of the route in
this option and that too I guess you are proposing to have a upper limit
of 150 minutes (9000 seconds) on that. What is the reason behind that.
What should be done after the expiry of this 150 minutes..?
Information-Request..? or DHCP Renew.?

I don't think that router lifetime will be that short and even if router
lifetime expires, DHCPv6 server can just send RECONFIGURE.  Normally
IPv6 addres lease time will not usually be that less.  


Further, What's the real need of having MAC/link address in the route
list option as there already exists means to get it.
