Wow, answers back already.
The consensus is that it won't matter as NIS+ and DNS are unrelated.
My concern is that Solaris' gethostbyname() is broken, and I know
of at least one program that uses the NIS domain if a FQDN is not
returned by gethostbyname() [to generate a license key].
I was hoping to get info on other potential pitfalls, no one has
mentioned anything, so hopefully I'll be OK.
I'll send a followup if anyone else reports difficulties they've
encountered, or if I find any problems with it.
