For what it's worth, at least when using long node names, you can
assign whatever arbitrary name you want to a node.  E.g., there's
nothing stopping me from running "erl -name foo@REDACTED" or "erl
-name bar@REDACTED" on my laptop right now.  The only catch is that
this node needs to be the one to initiate all distribution
