One thing you learn when using FAI for a longer time is to
think about how to split things into classes. Only a few "large"
classes or a lot of classes which only contain a few config
information. But I guess in the embedded environment you have to use a
longer list of classes because of the very different hardware.

Ah, now I understand. You do not use a clean basefile without any apt
data, sources-list, machine-id and resolv.conf you use a basefile
which already includes security updates.
