Yes. radvd should provide all these information. But radvd doesn't support this right now. I talked to someone who is patching SNMP to support new IP MIBs, he said it's better to support this through netlink, since netlink supports all other MIBs. Does netlink support user-user communication?
Anyway I will talk to radvd maintainers to ask them to support this if you think this netlink notification is not needed.

I don't understand why it is needed.
radvd is respoinsible for those information.
