Even assuming they come out of the factory with unique addresses

Sure, it's possible to repair all these problems, but why exactly were
we doing this in the first place again...? Hardware addresses make bad
identifiers. Just give me 64 bytes of NVRAM so I can burn in the
identifier of my choice.
And how will you be assuring that 64 bytes is globally unique?
