because I do not want to have to create an entry for every client, obviously.

We have a pxe boot menu that bootloads lots of installers (even
windows), and having to run fai-chboot for every device is an
administrative nightmare.

Obviously, we only allow to run boot installations from a specific
vlan and switch port, so no client gets installed by accident.
