Interesting tidbit regarding MS Server 2008 DHCPv6 implementation not 
being capable of supporting prefixes other than /64 that I received on 
another list:

Many thanks to Ralph Droms for verifying that Cisco does support
extended prefixes.  As you can see from the forwarded e-mail below,
Microsoft does not ;-(

I am interested in associating extended length (longer than 64 bit)
prefixes with links or link addrresses.  Will the WIN SVR 2008 DHCPv6
server support prefixes longer than 64 bits?
