Child connects to a network, perhaps just to go online outside of
school. The network has an XS. The laptop registers. The journal is
backed up to the server.

That's true but it's unlikely that the child would try to register
outside of school.

I think the current XO-XS communication is secure enough in the places
where it needs to be. But registration indeed is a big problem and it
could do with a rethink which would probably involve some kind of
key-based auth to achieve the best results in terms of user
