Good question ... not useless, but not sure how (and/or if) it would work ...

the script creates a /var/db/bsdstats file that contains the KEY/TOKEN that is 
used to talk to the server, which is used on subsequent reports so that it 
doesn't get reported as a 'new host', but just updates the old data ...

If its diskless, will each reboot end up reporting as a whole new host each 
time, or is there some way of saving that /var/db/bsdstats across reboots?
