Okay, I can see that.  I guess SEND ran past me while I wasn't
looking :-)  Would any of the ex-SEND-ites be able to help me 
out by reading the draft and suggesting a short bit of text --
as far as I can tell OptiDAD-02 and SEND-CGA "just works", because
version -02 no longer says anything about how addresses are
generated.

But are there any other SEND messages sent at address configuration
time which might cause harm in the case of an address collision?

No worries.

Argh!  I was sure I'd fixed that one!
