DHCPv6 is not the only way to configure dynamic IPv6; my home network is
using SLAAC.  IMHO that will probably be more common in home and other
small networks.  The only thing I'd be missing for v6-only would be the
ability to set an equivalent for "next-server" for PXE booting, but I
don't think the PXE stacks support v6 anyway, so it's a moot point.

I don't speak for anybody but myself - that's enough trouble.
