First I thought, "how useful is that", requiring a small USB stick with a bootloader when I'm using PXE boot for installing on machines that CANNOT boot from USB or CD.

However, the option to PXE boot by just changing a dhcp configuration option, makes this possible (and dead easy). This does look like a very interesting project.

Indeed. I only wish PC BIOSes were sophisticated enough to be able to accept user-entered netboot parameters instead.
