DHCPv6 tftp server and filename options

I'm trying to configure dhcpd 4.0.0b1 for stateless DHCPv6, i.e. I want
to get an address by stateless adress autoconfiguration and the IP 
address of my tftp server and the bootfile name from a DHCPv6 server.
So, what I want to do is, send an information-request and get a reply
with tftp-server and a filename. 

I'm a bit confused about how to configure dhcpd with the appropriate
option settings though. There are the old DHCP options, DHCPv6 options
and docsis (cable labs) dhcp options.

RFC 3736 [0] doesn't say anyting about TFTP server and filename options. Is
there really no way to do this with DHCPv6?
I found and old IETF draft "DHCPv6 Support for Remote Boot - 
draft-ietf-dhc-dhcpv6-opt-rboot-00.txt" [1] but it expired in 2003. 

It would be nice if somebody could give me a hint. Any ideas?

with kind regards
