Correct; NM won't (yet) try to get IPv6 addresses, though we have some
infrastructure to handle IPv6 via LL, router advertisements, and DHCP
+/- information only mode, it's not all there. Full IPv6 support will
be added in the near future and is a major target for post 0.7
NM should not stomp on IPv6 LL addresses that get assigned to the
interface however. If it does, it's a bug.
