Apologies for not getting these out sooner, I've just gotten around to 
implementing this option.


In this document, two things seem to veer slightly from the existing DHCP 

First, it seems that suboptions 1 and 2 could be consolidated into one 
suboption only. Regular DHCP options carry multiple values in preferential 
order, so I don't see why this suboption couldn't do the same.

Second, I'd rather see suboption 3 broken out into two different suboptions 
denoting the different data types. I'm not aware of any other DHCP option 
that has a type field.
