I think this is a very good idea, assuming you are in an environment
where DNS caching helps more than it does harm :) Which should be the
case for most distributed logging setups.

You should definitely implement a boolean option for turning this on and
off in the configuration file, and add directives for cache size and
expiry time as well.
