Even if it didn't balk on startup (I guess, I haven't looked), that
still wouldn't work.

dhcpd only appends the ddns-rev-domainname to the reversed 4-octet
leased address.  So you can only form "a.b.c.d.[ddns-rev-domain].",
you can't form "a.b.0/21.c.d.[ddns-rev-domain]."

We currently allow forward names to be selected by concatenating
two values (host name and domain name).  It would not be a terribly
distant stretch to do something similar here.
