I was worried about that problem as well.  But couldn't find a better
solution when I started looking at the hardware addresses.  In my case
false positives are better than false negatives.  So I can afford some
sweeping large brush strokes.

I had seen vendor-class-identifier but had no way of knowing what
would be in there.  Your option to log what comes back looks very
useful.  I just turned that on a moment ago and will see what gets
logged from it.
