I wish a really great feature :-)

Clients are reachable via host based on their description in Nebula (Nebula description is mac based).

New setting in DNS section: Add hostnames by nebula description (special characters will be replaced by hyphen in hostnames).

Sequence:
The administrator can e.g. set the description via the Nebula App as soon as the device is in the network e.g. "printer-room23". All clients can now reach the printer via the hostname "printer-room23". 

Especially great: Since the Nebula description is based on the MAC address, the printer can be reached even if it gets a new IP address via DHCP.

Thanks a lot!

    I see Nebula already has this feature, of changing the description value to specific, as required.
    Devices will always be identified as per their MAC addresses, that's as per IEEE specification.
