Branch routers for consumer use

I see a big potential in marketing the BR100 branch router for residential use with our public wifi initiative. However, I see a potential issue in managing the sheer number of the SSID and User Profile objects in HiveManager. It would be nice to have an option where I can deploy an SSID object to the branch router that generates a random broadcast SSID, i.e. just a 5 or 6 digit alphanumeric similar to how Comcast and Verizon are doing home router setups, and generates or allows me to specify an SSID WPA2 key in the device for that SSID object. Same thing for User Profile. That way I can create one Network Policy, deploy to hundreds of branch routers, and each one would have a different SSID and WPA2 key for private consumer use, same IP scheme, but still allowing me to deploy the public wifi guest use profile.
