I'll make the case that if a "router" becomes unable to forward packets
because it has lost its uplink or connection to another subnet (so it's now
homed on only one subnet), that's a router-to-host transition.

RFC2461, sections 6.2.4 and 6.2.5 discuss the case of a router becoming
a host - and it includes "thou shalt cease blabbing the RAs after a
suitable amount of time".  And that's a heck of a lot older than 3 years.
