Yes. Otherwise, a future version of leafnode might just drop the article
if it sees its name in the Path:; also, Message-ID: collisions can cause
articles to be lost. "Don't do that" (same FQDN).

However, if you have a domain name that belongs to you, just add a
unique prefix for each name. Let's assume pierre-abbat.net is your
domain, name the machines main.pierre-abbat.net and
backup.pierre-abbat.net, that's it.
