Can we clarify exactly what you are trying to accomplish here?  
(Using my domains in example...)

It's very easy to do if you want all customers coming in from addresses to get one set of groups, and another 
group of customers coming in from to get another set 
of groups.

If, on the other hand, you want to operate it so that an individual 
customer gets one set of groups if they connect to 
'' and a different set of groups (same 
customer, same IP address/hostname) if they connect to 
'' then things get more complicated.

Which is it that you're going for??
