[leafnode-list] Disabling The "Is Valid FQDN" Check
I can see that the fQDN validation is well-intended, but in my case it's unwelcome because:
1. I use zeroconf networking, that puts my machine in the ".local" domain, and makes changing it globally unwanted and difficult.
2. Anyway, my upstream server rewrites my message-ids, making the need to pick a name, pointless. And,
3. I do not like the idea of using a name - any name - not under my control, whether it exists in DNS or not. MSGids must be globally unique, not valid; this is the new reality. It is exactly the same thinking that makes any valid domain or domain name portion in munging a very bad idea.
Please can we have a feature in future leafnode releases that, while defaulting to on, makes it entirely possible to disable at runtime. Just like we have with the allowStrangers option. For now I am using my machine name in my own registered domain using the leafnode-only config option "hostname", but would sooner not assume an identity that isn't real, in DNS.
