This document specifies a DHCPv4 option to indicate that a host
supports an IPv6-only mode and is willing to forgo obtaining an IPv4
address if the network provides IPv6 connectivity. It also updates
RFC 2563 to specify DHCPv4 server behavior when the server receives a
DHCPDISCOVER not containing the Auto-Configure option but containing
the new option defined in this document.

This document is a product of the Dynamic Host Configuration Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard.
