You're trying to invent yet another way of solving the "naming IPv6 hosts" problem, made more difficult by the fact that they change addresses as the delegated prefix changes.
There are a couple of other possibilities. 1) If you're using DHCP for IPv4, look at the dnsmasq "ra-names" facility, which can make creating DNS entries for RA-allocated addresses automatic. 2) Consider giving your hosts ULA addresses as well as addresses with the prefix you get from you ISP. If you just want a DNS name that's usable from the local net, then that gives you a stable address to associate with the DNS name. Cheers, Simon.
