I have to agree with Bernie here - the point of referencing the concat
option is to make *sure* that a client that does domsearch (or csr)
also supports concat.   A client that implements domsearch or csr but
not concat then becomes non-conforming.   If domsearch or csr doesn't
*require* concat, then this is not the case, and the server doesn't
know whether or not it can do concat.   So domsearch and csr *must*
require concat.   And this is why concat is worded the way it is - if
it were required across the board, it would be useless, because there
would be no way of telling DHCP agents that support it from DHCP
agents that don't.
