A couple of comments...
- If you had a wireless keyboard with integrated pad/trackball or you had a wireless keyboard and mouse combo that share a USB dongle, then you could simply move the USB dongle to the particular unit that you need to access locally (during maintenance activities, etc.). I don't see it as being important to have an ability to locally connect to all units simultaneously; most access will be done remotely and, if Windows is the chosen O/S, Windows Remote can be used if you have Professional/Enterprise Windows licenses.
- In some remote placements, you don't have control over the power situation and failures can occur. As well, hangs do happen from time to time (alas, even in the best of environments). Consequently, a capability for remotely power cycling the sticks might be appropriate.
