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:
