Sensible goals, but somewhere down the path it's going to get awkward
for various reasons.
One of the things I have toyed with is simply naming the servers
something more generic and then using a single set of servers for all
domains. The point of the slightly obscure generic domain name is that
it doesn't then annoy anyone in particular that the server is named
under their competitor's name or whatever.... Depends how technical the
users are, but I would have thought it was fairly rare for people to be
investigating and moaning about reverse dns or banners?
This potentially saves you a lot of IPs and makes managing multiple
hosts a lot easier? Not what you asked, but hopefully an interesting option
