There also is a patch floating around to auto-install openbsd:

Not fully sure why this wasn't merged yet.  One problem is that this
patch depends on a new slirp feature (added in the 3.1 devel cycle,
needed to serve install.conf via http).  Which blocked merge during the
3.1 cycle, because depending on unreleased qemu for test builds isn't a
good idea.  But 3.1 is released, so maybe we can merge that for 4.0 now?

The openbsd installer trying to fetch install.conf not only via http but
also via tftp would also simplify things, maybe implementing that is an
option for the next openbsd release?
