But in reality nodes will have full DHCPv6 client support in them (3315)
whether or not they then see the M or O flag that is what they will use?

All the DHCPv6 servers implemented to date, to my knowledge, are 3315 and
not the 3736 subset.   

So it is better to just say O flag is other (non address) configuration
data, regardless of full/subset of DHCPv6 used?
