IMO client installation initiated from replica needs to have a special
option(hidden in help) similar to --on-server (or what's its name). E.g.
the name can be --replica-install. Maybe --on-server can be used but it
may have other implication which might not be valid for this use case.

Anything else are just workarounds. Imagine that admin runs
ipa-client-install with --unattended or --force-join. He would then not
get the message as now.
