That will teach me to reply to stuff before reading *all* my e-mail (actually,
probably not).

Hot off the press today (now we just need to wait for code to ship):

        DOI:        http://dx.doi.org/10.17487/RFC7695

This document specifies a distributed algorithm for dividing a set of
prefixes in a manner that allows for automatic assignment of sub-prefixes
that are unique and non-overlapping.  Used in conjunction with a protocol
that provides flooding of information among a set of participating nodes,
prefix configuration within a network may be automated.

This document is a product of the Home Networking Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard.
