Will have to be MAC.  URL example is fine.  Passing MAC up from networking
stack will be painful requiring a custom low-level listener.  Implementation
will be susceptible to hacking if providers do not enforce MAC addresses at
switch/vswitch ports.

Alternative is to say that Œmachine-id¹ is always deposited in / or C:\ and
has UUID.
