Hi,

This is called "DHCP relay or DHCP server on the router".  I can't see
what this has to do with RA ("periodically multicasted to everyone who
wants to receive it").

This idea is... completely lacking the understanding of the difference
between solicited and unsolicited information, and also of the existing
possibilities of just having a DHCPv6 server (or relay) on the router 
itself.
