as I've said a few times now, reason #775 that autoconf is a broken
and non-useful 'gadget' for network operators. There is a system today
that does lots of client-conf (including the simple default-route +
dns-server) called DHCP, there MUST be a similarly featured system in
the 'new world order' of ipv6.

This really is non-negotiable, why are people still holding out hope
that autoconf is 'enough' when users and operators have so clearly
said otherwise?
