My scenario was that we have "mesh" interfaces where HNCP "routers"
talk to each other and we have "attached something" interfaces which
provide DHCP/RA for the non-routers attached to them.

so no "hybrid" interface where you have multiple routers AND hosts who
need DHCP/RA.

I will try to get some results when we moved to the new building
(which will most likely happen at the end of this month).
