IPv6 PPP procedures?

I have begun experimenting with IPv6 PPP using Brian Somers' latest BSD
PPP sources. I am at the point where PPP connections come up and a
link-local address is negotiated for each end, vis:
tun0: flags=8051<UP,POINTOPOINT,RUNNING,MULTICAST> mtu 1398
inet6 fe80::1387:a573%tun0 --> fe80::1422:8917%tun0 prefixlen
128 scopeid 0x6
As soon as it is in this state, I can also use 'iface add' to assign
routable addresses to both sides manually to get
inet6 3ffe:1200:301b:3::1 --> 3ffe:1200:301b:3::2 prefixlen 128
at which point route6d on the "server" makes the endpoint reachable and
everything is good and righteous.
The problem is that it requires more or less manual intervention to do
all of that.
Is there a spec for what a PPP connection is supposed to do once the
link-local addresses are established? Shouldn't the "client" at that
point perform a router solicitation to determine the prefix on its
endpoint or something?
