Hi,

> 2. Attempt to say that RAs and DHCPv6 are simply containers and propose a unified option format so we can have the same options in both of them. I know this was already proposed once and was shot down, but I wasn't around, so I don't know why. (CCing a few people who might know).

I don't know why it was shot down, but this seems the least bad option to me. At least there will be a uniform set of options. Having almost-the-same-but-not-quite duplication between RA and DHCP will be the worst possible outcome...

Met vriendelijke groet,
Sander Steffann
