Yes, exactly.

I sent a fairly detailed reply about that to the mailing list yesterday. 
If it didn't make it through, I can resend it.  I think (hope) it should 
answer your questions and give you a roadmap on where to put what.

In short, subnet-specific parameters are always applied to hosts *booting 
in that subnet.*  Host-specific parameters need to be applied to 
individual hosts, or to groups of hosts.
