Even better, nat to a 'bogon' DNS server -- one that -- regardless of the
query -- returns the address of a dedicated machine on your network set up
especially for this purpose.

What happens when the client sends a POST from a cached page on the end
user's machine? E.g. if they post login credentials. Of course, they'll get
the error page, but then you have confidential data in your logs and now
you have to protect highly confidential info, at least if you're in europe.

It is possible to configure the web server not to log POSTed info.
