Yes, but the hostnames that result from the dynamic address are
often quite long and ugly. That's why I don't allow dhclient to set
the hostname automatically.

My host doesn't offer any service to the internet. Thus I'm not
interested to have an accessible "dynamic" hostname which is
resolvable in the internet.

But as shown in Simon Barner's article 
the _genericstable_ feature can be used for outbound aliases.
That's what I'm using now.
