Bug Description

There are certain cases where a user may have site specific customization they would like to do on all of their nodes. MAAS does some of this for NTP through the UI, but cloud-init allows for so much more with vendor data. I would suggest allowing the user to provide a yaml for vendor data that would be merged with the MAAS vendor data and applied to all nodes.

Thanks for the patch! There are some hygiene issues with the branch (no tests, won't work in the snap) but I think more importantly we need to understand the kinds of customisation that is required here. The existing preseeds mechanism is valuable as a workaround for things that MAAS doesn't (yet) support, but we have to be very careful extending it.

Can you evaluate the customisation that you're needing and classify it?
