This document updates RFC 3315 by redefining the default values for
SOL_MAX_RT and INF_MAX_RT, and defining options through which a
DHCPv6 server can override the client's default value for SOL_MAX_RT
and INF_MAX_RT with a new value.
Working Group Summary
This document was called draft-droms-dhc-dhcpv6-solmaxrt-update
before it was quickly adopted. There was never any controversy
regarding usefulness of this work. There was never any oposition
or alternatives to this work. WGLC passed with couple technical
improvements suggested. This work was requested by v6ops WG.
Several of the folks voicing their support during WGLC are not
active in DHC, so I assume that they are form v6ops. In my opinion
this proposal has concensus to move forward in both dhc and v6ops.
There are no existing implementations, but this work is expected
to be implemented quickly as it has strong support from v6ops WG
(that need it for their CPE requirements bis aka RFC6204bis).
No external requirements are needed as this work is purely DHCPv6
extension. This draft was reviewed and extensively discussed during
IETF meetings and on the mailing list. There was a total of
139 mails regarding SOLMAXRT update posted to the ML.

RFC Editor Note:
Please make the following edit. Look carefully, it's a maze of twisty passages, all different. This is the last line in the stated changes in section 3, and fixes a cut-and-paste error:
SOL_MAX_RT 3600 secs Max Information-request timeout value
INF_MAX_RT 3600 secs Max Information-request timeout value
