At https://staktrace.com/spout/entry.php?id=791#c1263 Callek suggested being able to set up sync or a fennec profile on a new device via NFC. We should investigate to see how feasible this is.
This has crossed my mind, too.

If an appropriate generic channel for inter-device messaging in Fennec exists, then doing this should be trivial… but it's not work I'd do just for Sync right now, given that Sync is not under active development. And I'm sure there would have to be a UI component, right?
Me three.  In PICL discussions, cbeasley seemed to think NFC was not a good choice for reasons I didn't pursue.  CCing her to see what she thinks.
