Thanks to everyone that responded. Based on the information from this list and several other areas I posted the same question, it seems like a feasible goal. 

If anyone has any ideas on how to either reduce my sleeping requirements or extend the number of hours in a day so that I can actually implement this, I would love to hear from you. :-P

Subject: Semi-automated L3 interface DNS records

Does anyone out there have any experience with a script, tool or appliance that would help manage the creation and maintenance of DNS records for Layer 3 interfaces on routers and switches?

We'd like to move toward this practice to help with troubleshooting and IPAM, but it's not feasible to do it manually. At a minimum, I was mulling over the idea of writing a script that would poll a device via SNMP to obtain interface information, parse it, compare the results to DNS, then generate a report if it found a miss. It wouldn't be fully-automated, but it would be better than doing that portion of the work manually. Cleaning up dead entries would be another issue.
