Well, the templating within Chef capability for a start.

It's extremely flexible. Plus as it's written in pure ruby, it's extensible
(think reading in user information from ldap or SQL etc..)

I'm not entirely sure that you'd be able to achieve the flexibility of chef
with FAI's softupdates, although my knowledge of softupdates is fairly
limited I'm afraid. If you have any additional reading, feel free to send it
my way :)
