No worries.   However, I don't think this really helps.   Yes, the host will browse all those domains, but no, the user will still be confused, because the host will present a bunch of confusing _locations_ along with the names.   As far as the user is concerned there aren't a bunch of locations (probably)--there's just one.   And if there are multiple locations in the user's mental model of the network, you won't be able to say anything to them that makes sense, because in that case half the links will be transit links, or will all appear to the network to be in the same location (if they are wired and go through a hub).
