> I added this because the DHCPv6 client was complaining about the lack of IID on the downstream interface. I also think some things (router solicitation?) would not work properly if the interface had no link-local address.

Then the code need to be fixed, not the standard... DHCPv6 does not require an IID, only our implementation. RS/RA are not needed over an end-to-end connection as it should be clear which is the upstream router from context.

Still don't understand why you can't use Ethos for that, if you are going non-standard anyway...
