[Dnsmasq-discuss] using --dhcp-fqdn without setting domain based on IP

I have my systems send their hostname and domain-name with the DHCP request. 
Based on that I want to add the machines to the DNS without configuring IPs or 
MAC-adresses though. All the machines are on the same subnets. I have 3 
different domains.

Is this possible?

The only way I see at the moment is to use the "dhcp-host=" to give a host a 
certain IP-Address and - based on that - have it in a different "domain=" 
section. But then I have to maintain additional configuration - which I don't 
see necessary (I may be missing something) and would try to omit.
Configuring the domains once via "domain=" options is fine of cause. But 
having to enter new settings for each machine (via "dhcp-host=") is what I 
would like to avoid.
