Probably, except for those vendors who would rather not want to be
required to implement DHCPv6 for tasks {Foo, Bar, ....}.

The question is really whether DHCPv6 is a feasible requirement in
*every* scenario where you'd desire prefix delegation, [DNS
discovery], and [whatnot].  If there is consensus that the answer is
"yes", we can focus the energies elsewhere.  But I do not think there
is such concensus (even a rough one; even if it might help).
