If the goal is to blend in, then why not:
- Collect nearby MAC vendor codes.
- Run it through a blacklist.
- Then randomly choose a vendor code.
- Randomize the remaining parts.
This should cause it to blend in better.
Alternatively, get a list of vendor codes to emulate (based on region or something similar), and randomize based on those vendor codes.
I suppose in some places, owning a DELL Laptop would spell as much trouble as owning a FreedomBox; so picking a good list of vendor codes would be needed.
