Whether is it router.home or router.vendor.com, both names assume
that the CPE device is in the DNS lookup path to get the correct
address returned for the name.

If the CPE puts out a search list of "home.arpa" rather than "home"
in the DHCP lease and added the machines to home.arpa rather than
home zone I doubt many people would notice.  Most home users would
be using unqualified names and the resolver's search will qualify
them.

This is all about getting sensible defaults in new CPE devices and
have a reserved place for them.  This should already be configurable
if they doing this sort of thing.
