Following up myself, it seems bootxx_cd9660 would indeed be consistent:

miyu% pwd
miyu% ls -d */stand/*boot* | grep cd

I'm not familiar with any of those sources, but the program should be 
renamed at least. I don't know if there are further guidelines to follow, 
please check the sources listed above first!
