You betcha, though all good information.

1. Nope, the CNAME is not controlled by me.
2. Nope, the CNAMEd sites are on another provider.
3. Yes, it is possible by our support system.
4. Nope, no bind here.

I have been reading the info everyone posted, and I configured a domain 
as I was asked. Since the reconfigured domain did no harm to my servers, 
I am inclined to let them do it. If it is the right thing to do, or the 
proper thing to do, seems to matter little those in the big offices. If 
they can find nowhere on the internet where it says "THOU SHALL NOT DO 
<this>", they believe <this> is industry standard.

So WTH, I'll do it, so long as it doesn't cause my pager to go beep in 
the night.

I am too tired of arguing to keep it up anymore.
