With that stanza, one can then use FQDNs on the static host assignments, and this should be the domain reported for any clients that request it.  If <domain name .. ./> is not specified in the config file, then there is no change in behaviour.

  Sounds fine to me, and the patch looks clean and simple, I'm fine with
this, someone else with more networking insight can back this up too ?
