 All the pac files have been setup and confirmed working. I can setup 
wpad.company.network and it will work.
I want to accomplish, if you say, a generic kind of design. I do not 
want to be dependent on modifying/restarting dnsmasq
every time a client shows up on my network with a different domain name 
in it's network properties. I understand that
some people may find it questionable/crazy, but I think it is 
technically possible.
