I can't think of a use case for an XO to access multiple school servers. 
If a school is so large (> 200 XOs), the easy solution is two school 
servers. However, the XOs access the schoolserver based on SSID and so 
users can be divided to their own schoolserver by the connection - 
defining the LAN.

The OLE Nepal solution clearly satisfies the requirement to avoid any 
unnecessary configuration option or 'onboarding' step.

The current placement of the code has been working for years. Showing 
the server in the network section was added at a late release, as I 
recall because the register menu item disappeared after registration and 
so a user did not know for sure if the XO was registered. This was later 
fixed with 'register again' so putting the name in the network section 
is now redundant.
