I'm not quite sure whom you have been trying to get feedback from, and
can't quite picture your proposed setup from above description.

In any case, ISTM that your approach isn't compatible with how buildbot
works today (not sure whether you are aware of that): a build slave
needs to stay connected all the time, so that the build master can
trigger a build when necessary.

So if your setup requires the slaves to shut down after a build, I don't
think this can possibly work.
