DHCPv6 + RA works for that, but still, that really should have been part 
of the protocol from day one.  I see no good reason for it not to be in 

I suspect that will eventually be fixed, but it will be a long time before 
the majority of DHCPv6 client and server implementations are upgraded to 
support it.
