Your requirement is different - you want to build something that
replaces this ISP black box.

May be it is not that common use case as you pretend it to be. Which
would explain why developers do not rash to jump the boat.

When you get a prefix, you need some method to do it automatically, so
that manual configuration is not required. That method is dhcpv6-pd. I
am not trying to replace the ISPs black box. I'm trying to work with
what they provide and that is dhcpv6-pd. So, any firewall/router that
connects to their network has to use it. Plain dhcpcd only gets an
address for the firewall/router and not devices on the local network.
