I didn't either, but I assumed it was a reference to the practice of access
layer gear (DSL, ...) inserting "subscriber line identifiers" into your DHCP
requests so that the DHCP server can tell which subscriber is asking and
return a custom result.  There's the same thing for RS's as well, so that
the right RA can be determined and returned (unicasted to you).

But I could be totally mistaken.
