The point isn't that I couldn't read about DHCP PD; the point is that
I didn't know that I needed to understand DHCP PD to also understand
how IPv6 is widely deployed, until someone who did know very kindly
pointed me in the right direction.

I was overwhelmed with this information. Remember, I'm trying to learn
about IPv6 because I *want* to know more; I don't want to be ignorant.
I really, really am honestly trying, and I'm telling you it was hard.
If I'm *looking* to learn and still can't figure it out, what does
that say about all the people who don't care as much?
