That reply doesn't surprise me the least, it's the standard answer from
every geek who has not spent a few weeks thinking about this :-)

My mom and dad do not put stuff in DNS.  If at all, their router does, and
*that* one perfectly well knows how to handle changing prefixes, and update
DNS if needed.  It has a menu listing currently active hosts, you pick a
host ID from it, give it a name, and it's published.  (It's not as good
as it could be, as you end up in the vendor's DNS tree and not in a 
DNS domain of your choice, but it's "running code")

Now, please tell me who is more relevant for *homenet*?  A geek who is 
stuck in "I want to do this the old way!  I have always done it that way!"
or "a standard mom and dad household"?
