There are several types of domains.  DNS domain and mounting domain is
not the same. :)

The mounting domain can choose freely any name, but the DNS domain
must avoid colliding with any existing or future domain.

I'm not sure what you are trying to say here?  The point of using
home0 is to indicate that it is useful to add home1, home2 and more.
It is a good thing to avoid putting too many users on a single file
system, to make sure they do not disturbe too many users when the file
system is full, and to give a signal to the users that they should not
spend unlimited amount of disk space.

No problem with me answering questions.  It just may take some time
before I get to them. :)
