I mentioned that, and it turns out they meant s/domains/servers/ but they 
really really don't want to re-IP, which I can understand. I had to re-IP 
10 servers when my former employer moved offices, and it wasn't much fun. 
They have 50+ boxes in their space, and about half are client colos. In 
light of the advice I've heard here and elsewhere, I'm a bit nervous about 
what will happen, but I did tell them I would do it if Sprint agreed. I 
expected that Sprint would say no, but they claim that Sprint has agreed.
