I thought that could be an option, however I encountered RSes without
the Source Link Layer Option, which means if RFC6085 is to be used,
the link-layer header has to be available to get the source link-layer
address from.

After I wondered about the efficiency benefit of using multicasts for
solicited RAs, Fred asked me to do some testing/investigation. I wrote
up what I found here, the few unusual RS cases I saw the following,
which I put down some thoughts about handling via e.g., RFC6085.

o  RSes with a :: source address

o  RSes with a link-local source addresses, but no Source Link-Layer
Address Option
