Re. FQDN:  is it not possible to insert an IP (dotted quad form) in
place of a FQDN if the injecting agent doesn't have a real FQDN?
I think I've seen this in live headers.

If the RFC 5537 allows this, then leafnode should allow it, too.  The
next question would be how to reliably determine this IP or how to
configure it for dial-up hosts, but this shouldn't be a hard problem.
