we still don't have hostname setting in new UI.
(1) We could add it to the network spoke, make it required, and then
display the network spoke up front if DHCP didn't give us a hostname.
The biggest problem I see with this is making the hostname entry widget
obvious enough that the user knows that's what we are asking for.
I like this option because specifying the hostname as the DHCP_CLIENT_ID
is a common usage for smaller networks.  So asking for the hostname
and propagating it as default for DHCP_CLIENT_ID would help me.
I often boot several systems (one at a time, in sequence) on the
same hardware, so the map from HWADDR to hostname changes often,
and the DHCP server does not know the correct answer unless the
client specifies it.

DHCP_CLIENT_ID can be set in nm-c-e ("Configure" in network spoke).
using DHCP Client ID entry in ipv4 configuration tab.

For kickstart, anaconda allows to set DHCP_HOSTNAME (for DDNS) by

network --bootproto=dhcp --hostname=foo

command, but it does not have option to set DHCP_CLIENT_ID.
Otoh, nm-c-e doesn't allow for setting DHCP_HOSTNAME, see
