To be honest, I haven't kept up with the full exchange on this topic, so please disregard my question if it is not relative to this discussion.

I read below that, if netmask and def gw would be added on handing out dhcpv6, "I can finally get rid of RA messages".
But what with hosts NOT supporting dhcpv6 client in this case ?  I might be fully wrong, but I cannot imagine it can be 100% enforced upon each host vendor to include dhcpv6 client support?

and if dhcpv6 gave out netmasks and default gateways, we could finally ditch RA.  I look forward to the day when I can finally expunge RA from my networks.
