>Why would anyone NOT want that?? what replaces that option in current RA

One nit - I like to differentiate between the presence of RAs (which should
be every user where IPv6 is present) and the use of SLAAC (RA + prefix).

Right now - Cheat off of IPv4's config.
(Lack of DHCPv6 client-side support, and lack of DNS v6 transport (WinXP),
necessitate this)

Hopefully soon - RFC5006.
Around the same timeframe - DHCPv6 (stateful or stateless, doesn't matter).
