With respect to lifetimes: if you do not agree discussing lifetimes now
then you may agree discussing lifetimes when implementation feedback of
existing option is out.  I suppose there is currently no implementation
of the existing option, whereas implementation of
draft-mouton-mif-dhcpv6-drlo-00 does exist, as reflected in
http://www.ietf.org/mail-archive/web/mif/current/msg01166.html

How does the existing implementation handle renewal?

What do you mean by "use case" so I can better detail how this default route option is necessary, thanks.

The 3G+ scenario is the first use case you've presented, so thanks for that.

If interface names are in fact required, that's interesting.   I really don't understand how that could work, though, since the DHCP server has no way to know what the client operating system is calling the interface.

Also, I'm a bit confused by the idea of an interface route with no router address in IPv6.   I will admit to being something of a tyro when it comes to these things, but I don't understand how that would work.   Does the client simply multicast every packet?   Is there an RFC or draft that documents how this works?
