Is this the expected flow according the PXE spec/DHCP RFC? or its just how iPXE is implemented?

iPXE will ignore it not because it doesn't yet have an IP address of its 
own, but because it doesn't have an IP address of the ProxyDHCP server 
(which should be present in option 54 of the ProxyDHCPOFFER).
