There are two problems with this idea.

1) The UUID is not supplied to the script (but that's easy to fix.)

2) The script execution is asynchronous. The DHCP protocol processing
doesn't wait for the script to execute, so you will have a big fat race
condition where the host may actually be booting before or after step 3
above has occurred.
