Provide BIND and a Dynamic DNS function in every free network service that one can download and install.

Empowerment. Have them name their machine, but also give them the power to give domain names themselves!

Give them a slot to enter a domain name for themselves (which is more effective for turning users from consumers to producers than one usually notices).
