Q. Sun: AUTHOR [+5]
As the migration towards IPv6 continues, IPv6-only networks will become more prevalent. In such networks, IPv4 connectivity will continue to be provided as a service over IPv6-only networks. In addition to provisioning IPv4 addresses for clients of this service, other IPv4 configuration parameters may also be needed (e.g., addresses of IPv4-only services).

DHCPv4-over-DHCPv6 (DHCP 4o6) Transport
IPv4 connectivity is still needed as networks migrate towards IPv6. Users require IPv4 configuration even if the uplink to their service provider supports IPv6 only. This document describes a mechanism for obtaining IPv4 configuration information dynamically in IPv6 networks by carrying DHCPv4 messages over DHCPv6 transport. Two new DHCPv6 messages and two new DHCPv6 options are defined for this purpose.
