This would be a big mistake. Fate sharing between the device that  
advertises the presence of a router and the device that forwards  
packets makes RAs much more robust than DHCPv4. And DHCPv6 is just a  
case of very bad design, don't expect it to work well without bending  
over backwards even farther than you're used to with DHCPv4. It's time  
for this DHC stuff to reach its final resting place.
