Douglas Owen's response was correct.   The choice of wording in 3315 with respect to opaqueness was unfortunate—the intended goal of that text was to require that DHCP servers consider the _whole_ DUID as the unique identifier, not just the link-layer portion, but it wasn't intended that the link-layer portion couldn't be used for other reasons.
