Hmm. I found this here:
Bjørn Mork asks the right questions:

I'm interested in how I
configure the *client* to request a PD and configure one or more
interfaces based on that.  The main problem is: How do I tell the client
that I want to allocate subnet X from the delegated /48 or /56 to
interface I, and subnet Y from the /48 or /56 to interface J?

Bonus for some way to trigger radvd to announce a subnet on one or more
interfaces, and extra bonus for some way to trigger dhclient based on
received RA flags (don't know if that is feasible as long as the
autoconf is done by the kernel?).

Were any of these answered somewhere?
I.e.: can we actually /use/ `dhclient -6 -P`?

Kind regards,
