Could you give me a little bit more on this?

It seems to me that most platforms stop listening to RAs once you give
them a static address.

Letting a host run slaac and then add a static address is not good
enough as the slaac address might be chosen for locally generated packets.

If it works with listening on RAs when running with statically
configured address, why HSRP/VRRP?
