Yes, I think you're right.

I based my work on jessie initially because we have JEB's high quality
jessie images to use as a baseline for comparison, and I found that

In practice, activating a JESSIE or STRETCH class still needs to happen
via the fai-diskimage commandline anyway, and these classes override the
release variable, so defining a default value for that variable in
class/DEBIAN.var was not actually useful. My inclination is to require
the user to activate a specific release class, and for FAI to abort if
one isn't provided.
