I think the way Domtool supports this now is to define a subdomain, even
if you think of the matter as though no subdomain exists.
Is there some negative DNS consequence for this that I didn't think of?
BTW, Domtool is supposedly able to get DNS data entirely through slaving
from BIND servers elsewhere. I don't think this has been tested much
yet. Would you rather do that?

While I hesitate to point most HCoop members to type signatures to
answer their questions, I hope that it's safe to do in this case. :-) See:
