[Dnsmasq-discuss] IPv6 configuration question

Is it required to set a global ipv6 address on the interface that dnsmasq
is serving in order for ipv6 information requests to work?

Currently this system works by requesting a DP and IA from the upstream
dhcpv6 server, setting the WAN port address to the IA and setting a route
to get packets from the LAN to WAN.

We've been using radvd to send RA's to the LAN but want to switch
everything over to dnsmasq.  My fumbling around so far has found that it
seems necessary to assign a global IPv6 address to the LAN port to make
dnsmasq happy.

FWIW my config files looks like:
# cat *.conf
# Set flag cwmp, when vendor-class contains dslform.org
# Sends option 1 with option space cwmp if the flag cwmp is set

Is there a way to get this working without setting a global address on the
LAN port?
