I sincerely hope dhcpv6 does not find its way to the specs. rtsol works,
and has none of the security problems associated with dhcp.
=> I *disagree*. We really need stateless/managed autoconfiguration and
rtsol has untractable security problems (*)... DHCPv6 has to work ASAP!
PS *: Dan McDonald tried and failed so the problem is at least very hard
with one exception: point-to-point links (PPP can easily setup a nice
security environment for you for instance).
PPS: if you need more arguments, just look at draft-perkins-aaav6-02.txt
(or the 03 I-D if it is out).
