This document proposes a Lightweight DHCPv6 Relay Agent (LDRA) that
is used to insert relay agent options in DHCPv6 message exchanges
identifying client-facing interfaces.  The LDRA can be implemented in
existing access nodes (such as Digital Subscriber Link Access
Multiplexers (DSLAMs) and Ethernet switches) that do not support IPv6
control or routing functions.  [STANDARDS-TRACK]
