Ah, one of those moments.  I have them too.  Good to know it's working
for you, and I would just because I'm the perfectionist personality
type, change a couple of things that won't make a negative impact.

The server's exports has no reason to export the diskless root with
-alldirs.  The system isn't asking for any mountpoint within / so you
can leave off the -alldirs.

2nd, you buildworld and installworld into the diskless root, but never
use it.  You're using disk space you can reclaim.
