Futile though it may be, I would like to register disagreement.

If the intention truly was to simplify the specification, we would be
going to pure DIID. As it is, removing mention of DIID seems like a
gratuitous change at best. As an author of one of those DIID
implementations, I find this somewhat unfortunate.

Also, there is the problem of DAD storms occurring whenever a new prefix
appears on a link. Will the revision be introducing a random delay
before a node begins the DAD procedure for each new address, or will
that make the specification too complex?
