Hi Simon,

thank you for your detailed information. I didn’t know there’s something
like temporary DHCPv6 addresses, but it indeed sounds like it is the
feature I was looking for.

I’m using dhcpcd as DHCP client, and it appears dhcpcd has a
configuration option "ia_ta" that can be placed in /etc/dhcpcd.conf,
which then causes dhcpcd to request a temporary address. That option
also optionally takes an IAID, but I’ve just used it without one and it
seems to run fine anyway. Attached you can find the (obfuscated)
server-side log of dnsmasq.

I’ll monitor what happens and will give feedback when time allows it :-)
