That was the original idea. But then the reality kicked in. The primary
use case for DUIDs in ipv4 is to be able to match requests coming from
dual-stack devices.

Not sure. If the client supports it, as a last resort you can capture
the traffic and extract its client-id option. That's not exactly a
convenient way, I admit that. I found a discussion about it on systemd
github: https://github.com/systemd/systemd/issues/394. It mentions some
pull requests that apparently were merged. You may want to look around
that area and see if anything comes up.
