This has some, but relatively little, to do with "Resolution of DNS
Name Conflicts among DHCP Clients", because the main threat is that it
doesn't conflict with another *DHCP client* (though that's imaginable
as well) but a manual entry (or that it might not conflict at all, but
just be something like wwww.example.com (with one extra 'w').

In any case, I think this requires quite a bit more extensive
discussion (and appropriate pointers) in draft-ietf-dhc-fqdn-option
(which seems like the main draft of this bundle) especially from the
*security* perspective.
