Some say yes, some say no - we've made the design decision at this point that
if it's configured this way, and the DNS fails, it's a very large failure and
should be warned about loudly rather than silently fail. If you want to prevent
this from being a problem, the best thing to do is to use IP numbers in the
virtualhost config:

  DocumentRoot ....

This will be emphasized in the revised documentation.
