Don't distress yourself about that. Security matters, so a discussion
when anybody doubts about it, is always worth the effort.

Unfortunately (as of my point of view) not. Those are heterogeneous
systems mostly Debian and Ubuntu in different versions of each. FAI and
such are a feasible solution just in case you have a (local) network of
machines, but is (practically) not usable as soon as you have different
Linux distributions, in different CIDR address zones for different
purposes for different customers which brings a lot of random voodoo for
each (group) of machines.
