With RDNSS you can optimize a bit and avoid a few extra packets and a little bit of software (stateless DHCPv6 does not require that much code), but SLAAC+Stateless DHCPv6 is certainly not useless. It's what I use on most unmanaged networks.

Didn't really want to reopen that discussion. But since you mentioned
it - yes, some of us would indeed prefer to use DHCP only, no SLAAC.
We *may* get there some day...
