Michael,

I agree with you. I don't think that we should force our users to deploy 
and configure any additional protocols in order to locate their ftp 
servers. Those servers are a fundamental part of the boot process in some 
environments, and that's what DHCP is for, right? FTP and TFTP server 
options should be part of the base option set.
