Niklas already answered, but I'd like to comment a little bit more.

the MINA website lists (UDP) broadcast support as missing. Is this
information still correct? Do you have any pointers for me, if I were to
embark on a mission to build broadcast support (specifically, something
DHCPish) based on old IO?
It's still correct and we'll be really glad if someone wants to implement it. Implementing a new transport type (
i.e. multicast) is to implement IoAcceptor and IoConnector interface. Please refer to the implementation classes such as DatagramAcceptor and DatagramConnector.
I didn't consider broadcasting at the moment I designed MINA API, so you might have to modify the API to support broadcasting thoroughly. It's OK of course. I think we need to support multicast before we release
1.0 for the completeness of the API.
