Summary: This draft is almost ready for publication as a standard track RFC.

Major issues:

Minor issues:

“the specification of a DHCPv6 option that could be used to discover
   unicast PREFIX64s in environments where multicast is not enabled.
   Such side effect conflicts with the recommendation documented in
   Section 6 of [RFC7051].”

It is unclear how the Section 6 of RFC7051 relevant with the content above. It
would be necessary to quote particular content of RFC7051 and give necessary


“the Pv4 multicast address is inserted in the last 32 bits of the IPv4-embedded
   multicast address.”
