Thanks :-)

I was being a bit Socratic. In the IPv4 world, routers in such complex
environments are generally manually configured. In other situations they
might use a routing protocol. Turning off RA in a similar environment
with IPv6 is no loss over IPv6.

My point (several messages ago,now) was in regard to DHCP information
being used to send preferred route information; seems to me that in a
situation where RA preference levels are not cutting it, a DHCP server
sending discrimination information is probably not going to cut it
