How is this going to work with surveillance-averse clients that change
their MAC address from time to time? I think wake-on-lan is going to
need a complete rethink (including IPv6, of course) because of this.

It seems to me that to solve this *and* the PXE issue, there's going
to end up being some requirement for the thin client to wake itself
up periodically and execute some sort of discovery process. (Something
we are going to need in the Anima WG, too, IMHO.)
