then it turns into a silly race… the network is forced to send RAs at very high frequency, because hosts that wake up with expired routers, don’t RS…

RFC4861: "The host re-attaches to a link after being detached for some time.”

I don’t see the purpose of a host re-soliciting unless the last default router is about to expire, NUD fails, strong indication that it has moved…

do we agree that a host that wakes up and has expired its last default router should restart router discovery?
(if I wrote the code on the host, I’d continue to use the expired router until I got a new one).
