We do need DHCP to act as a service, when writing an application that relies on DHCP it makes sense to have the initialisation and setup of the networking device consistently with having to reimplement the code over and over again in every application.
I can also see the DNS service being setup if we get a DNS server address via DHCP and set the context of the DNS client to allow resolution queries without having to do that by foot.
+1 for the approach described above.
Well, this API is not released yet, so I think it should be easy to remove, but we are running out of time for 1.7...
