from my perspective the short answer for this never-ending story is:

- SLAAC/RA is totally useless, does not bring any benefit at all
 and should be removed from IPv6 specs

I'm afraid you're about 10 years too late for this opinion to make
much difference. ;-)

I won't go so far as to say SLAAC should be removed from the IPv6 spec
but it's never too late to deprecate a protocol that doesn't pan out.
I'm with Owen:

Currently, most significant environments have to cobble together a complete
solution from remnants of SLAAC and DHCP. This is far from ideal.
Far better for organizations to look at 2 complete solutions and pick the
solution that works best for them in their environment.
