The trouble is the server doesn't necessarily know the laptop's UUID,
so it can't verify the lease.

If the XO is registered with the server, the UUID is available, but
how can the child first register without a lease?

The server could of course trust leases for unknown laptops and
verify the registered ones.  I'll work on that.
