The problem is, I don't want the auto IP, *or* the private IPs.  I

then assigns only the DHCP IP, but no route!   The behaviour I expect
with DHCP only is to still assign the route from RA.
The «DHCP Only» IPv6 method is unfortunately fundamentally broken, as
you've experienced. I believe that when it was implemented, it was
the assumption that DHCPv6 would (like DHCPv4) be able to completely
configure the network, including setting up routes. That is not the
case, however. I wouldn't be surprised if the "DHCP Only" method would
be removed or hidden/deprecated in the future. Don't use it.

I think Dan had removed it once but then added it back due to
