No way, at least not anywhere near the motherboard.  There isn't going
to be a way to fasten it very tightly into position, just tape probably,
possibly a zip tie at the back end.  So it would be best if the shroud
cannot short things out or scratch components off the motherboard if it
falls out of position.

I'm thinking perhaps 1/16" polypropylene, that may be stiff enough for
this, and it is similar to the shroud material we have in another server.
