I didn't find any references when I had a quick look on google.
The idea is to have a /<domain/<hostname>/<partition>/, to have a
system where the paths can be the same on every host, both the servers
and the clients.
It is not a good idea to mount NFS volumes on / (as in /home/),
because this will block all software resolving paths when the
NFS-server is unavailable. The <domain> part is to group all hosts
with a common domain in one directory. This is useful for servers
serving several domains.
This idea is also implemented by cfengine (check homeservers).
