If Joe Home User has a rogue device spewing RA's, he probably has a bigger
problem than just not having RA Guard enabled.  He either has a badly
misconfigured router (and one that's disobeying the mandate to not RA
if you don't have an uplink), or he has a compromised malicious host.

In either case, he's got bigger fish to fry.
