The "domainname" stored in the kernel has no direct relationship to
anything but itself. On machines that do not ever come near NIS (one
service which can use this stored string) (probably no machine on the
public Internet should ever do so too), it's perfectly reasonable to
store the default DNS domain name in the kernel using this facility (and
I do and ahve done for many many years now!).
