No, thank you.  This change makes nginx startup unconditionally 
dependant on the DNS availability.  This is not something we are 
going to accept.

Also, the $hostname variable is expected to be FQDN on systems 
participating in the DNS.  If it's not FQDN in your case, you may 
want to consider reconfiguring your system.  See 
for a previous discussion on the topic.
