Why do do we recommend against putting FQDN into /etc/sysconfig/network?

I have had no problems putting my full hostnames into
/etc/sysconfig/network (to be provided to the "hostname" command), and
in fact doing so removes the need to put "search" lines into
/etc/resolv.conf for the host's domain name, as the resolver library
will automatically search in the domain the host is in for unqualified
Do we have actual evidence that setting
HOSTNAME=fully.qualified.domain.name causes problems? If not, I'd like
to suggest changing the text that warns against it.
