One major comment:
5. Security Considerations

   Further work will be required to integrate Optimistic DAD with Secure
   Neighbor Discovery [SEND].

==> sorry for not saying this earlier, but this seems unacceptable to
me.  SEND specs are already in the RFC-ed queue, and the WG has been
closed.  This IMHO needs to be analyzed here.  I.e., analyze and state
how oDAD interacts (or not) with SEND.  AFAICS, there shouldn't be any
showstoppers here..
