Yes, I'm willing to do so. I've been interested in this topic for a while.

I think I read about that recently too.

I have an Nexus tablet here and an IPv6-only network with a DragonFly
router running the recent rtadvd (the one that sends the DNS config).
The Nexus got an address and was able to resolve names. That
doesn't say anything about its support about DHCPv6 (which isn't running on
this network), but it does indicate that has a fairly comprehensive
SLAAC implementation. It self-assigns an address on the v6 network,
sets a working route and configures its resolver, all based on the
information in the router advertisements.
