The document is being discussed in the v6ops wg of the IETF. Looks like
IETF is not going to do anything about it. But check the corresponding
thread at: <https://goo.gl/JZO031>, since you'll have at least a few
#facepalm moments.

Based on a recent discussion regarding the problem of conveying DNS
information in IPv6 networks, we have submitted this short I-D, in the
hopes of getting the aforementioned problem solved.

Your feedback will be appreciated.

A new version of I-D, draft-gont-v6ops-host-configuration-00.txt
has been successfully submitted by Fernando Gont and posted to the
IETF repository.

Name:		draft-gont-v6ops-host-configuration
Revision:	00
Title:		On the Dynamic/Automatic Configuration of IPv6 Hosts
Document date:	2017-02-27
Group:		Individual Submission
Pages:		6

   IPv6 has two different mechanisms for dynamic/automatic host
   configuration: SLAAC and DHCPv6.  These two mechanisms allow for the
   configuration of IPv6 addresses and a number of network parameters.
   While there is overlap in the parameters that can be configured via
   these two protocols, different implementations support only subsets
   of such parameters with either mechanism, or have no support for
   DHCPv6 at all.  This document analyzes a problem that arises from
   this situation, and mandates that all host implementations support
   RFC 6105 (DNS options for SLAAC) and the stateless DHCPv6
   functionality in RFC 3315.

Please note that it may take a couple of minutes from the time of submission
until the htmlized version and diff are available at tools.ietf.org.
