That's curious to me, I would have imagined separate config language
for lease timing and addressing (such as from a subnet {} clause or
global config parameter as we do in ISC DHCP for v4).

I'm also mystified by essentially configuring the prefix twice.

Do you find this syntax substantially more useful, if so why?
