As an FYI, I usually just create a group name that is similar to the 
hostname, then add the IP user to the group and use the group in ACLs. 
Of course, if you actually make a lot of DNS changes you'll need to keep 
these in sync, but it shouldn't be that hard to write a quick script to 
audit / check groups and IPs.
