Thanks to all who responded with input about why DHCPv6 should have  
options for default routers and prefix information.  We've published a  
draft defining these options, which will be discussed at the upcoming  
IETF meeting in San Francisco.

    A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts  

	   Title           : Default Router and Prefix Advertisement Options  
for DHCPv6
	   Author(s)       : R. Droms, T. Narten
	   Filename        : draft-droms-dhc-dhcpv6-default-router-00.txt
	   Pages           : 7
	   Date            : 2009-03-02

    In some IPv6 deployments, there is a requirement to communicate a
    list of default routers and advertised prefixes to a host through
    DHCP.  This document defines DHCP options to carry that information.
