Understood. There are environments where DHCP makes the most sense.

There are environments where SLAAC alone makes a lot of sense.

There are more environments where SLAAC+RDNSS actually makes the most sense, but it is unlikely that those environments would be well represented on this list. They are, however, the majority of real world deployments, contrary to what many of the members of this list would like to believe.

Feel free to contact me off list if you'd like more input.
