Ok, I know why I love this group so much. Not only nerds,
but also nitpicking nerds ... I guess I fit here quite well.

Fine, a whole load of ashes on my head.

Nonetheless, the point stays, that, if a second level domain
has only one host, there is no need to create computer names
within. Nor any standard asking that, if you run a specific
service, you have to add names.
