Not too good either - 1) we are getting dangerously close to the
64-byte limit for DNS labels (we can use
[dlci#.][ts#-#.][port#.][port#.][slot#.]router.europa.net though);
2) those with $50/mo might get really paranoid and request that the
card/port/slot info wouldn't be there at all, as it betrays that they
are not exactly on an OC3c link by the fact that there are too many
others on the same card.

Just keep it this way and let NOC people use other tools to figure out what
it really means.
