I'm not against including stateful DHCPv6, but it's doesn't seem to be used as
widely as the IPv4 version. The combination of SLAAC and stateless DHCPv6 is
normally enough, unless your network operator requires you to use DHCPv6.

In that case, patches are welcome.

Yes, you may do this. I probably won't.
