using your own example below and adding
"67.148.130.3 test.67.148.130.3"
to my /etc/hosts
I even created a test theory page that  would come up if your dns
resolved as such eww yucky.
It would not be possible from the outside because your not likely to
be able to get that domain name so I can see maybe why you say
impossible. I can't see why it would be desirable and I did read it
wrong. I thought he was talking about what you put below and worded it
funny. But an inside dns you could possibly add the addresses to
lookup correctly. Yucky don't use numbers as your subdomain rule of
thumb.
