As others have said, there's no technical problem here at all.

I would worry more about what sort of "information on the hosts" you are
going to publish, possibly world-wide. 

  TXT "Root password is M-6474ore"
  TXT "The one with a really expensive 3-D graphics card"
  TXT "Office 42, ground floor. Key is under the mat"

OK, I insult your intelligence! But I have seen things nearly that stupid
before now...
