We've taken an "on-demand" approach to adding options to DHCPv6 - that is, 
as options are requested, we've added them.  There hasn't been any 
intentional oversight; to avoid carrying forward unnecessary options (e.g., 
"Impress server"), we've simply started with a clean (or almost clean) 
slate.  'bootfile' and 'TFTP server' seem like good candidates for 
inclusion in DHCPv6.

For WG discussion - should the 'bootfile' and 'TFTP server' options be 
carried over verbatim to DHCPv6 or are there changes that should be made?
