Kea supports many option types described in Section 7.2.9: string, v4-address, v6-address, boolean, various integers etc. One primitive that is not supported is a prefix-length followed by a variable field containing the minimum number of bytes to store that prefix. This is something that RFC7227 recommends for options to do, so there will be more options like that.

One particular case where this is useful is in MAP/lightweight4over6 options (RFC7598).
