Cool, nice to have the choice to use DNS names if it fits the site's
needs.

I don't see how this helps with wandering salespeople, as they don't
control the DNS at whatever internet access they find (wireless hotspot,
sales prospect's network, etc), or controlling the Linux gateway I put
on my Dad's DSL line (dynamic IP).

I'm not bitching, just saying we might want to toss around ideas on ways
to increase the flexibility while still assuring identity.
