"mandate" isn't the right description.


There is a ~3 year old _proposed standard_ for the behavior you describe.

I have yet to see any compliant equipment at $LocalBigBox, but maybe I'm
not purchasing the right gear.

So yet again, the response I get to "ra's are fragile" is "deploy this
brand new band-aid that can't be purchased yet".

Can we just have DHCPv6, please?  How many dozens of technologies are we
going to invent to try and avoid putting a default route in DHCP?
