I'll correct you.

The fact is, that's not what people do. Not me, not kernel.org, not _any_
of the machines I've got access to. They put the fully qualified name in 
the hostname, and just do "search foo.com" in /etc/resolv.conf.

So clearly, expecting that people work the way you claim is being
extremely optimistic. I'm sure some people do that too, but I suspect I'm
in the majority. Both Fedora Core and YellowDog act the way I described, 
not the way you do..
