RE: CALL FOR DISCUSSION: DHCP over IKE vs Configuration Payload



I see this as both a pro and con. 

PRO - it gets it done earlier, in terms of the exchange process, whereas the
doc we wrote has the more extensive DHCP config occuring after CHILD-SA;
only the basics are done in IKE.

CON - it makes IKE heavier, more bytes (the more config options returned,
the more bytes) and thus IKE will take longer time-wise to complete.
