comment BGP/ASN: Network without own backbone?
If you've answered your own question, go ahead and mark it as accepted. allow-as in is the proper 'tool' for what you're trying to do in this situation. Keep in mind, though, that if your networks are really disparate, they should have their own ASN. Just because a feature works now does not mean it will always work the same way.

comment IP Level Failover for Web Servers With BGP (Am I Insane?)
@EricFalsken yes, typically if the router originating the route goes away, all the traffic for that route would go to the 'next best' location.

comment IP Level Failover for Web Servers With BGP (Am I Insane?)
@EricFalsken Generally speaking, both sites would get traffic at the same time, so it wouldn't be a true 'DR' thing. You would also need the necessary logic to figure out "when a site is not responding" to remove the route. For example, you would need your router to communicate somehow with your NMS to withdraw the route if, say, the web server stops responding on port 80.

comment Redistribution of iBGP learned routes to all routers?
Nobody allows a OSPF neighbor to come up if the two interfaces are in different networks If you expected that portion to work, some replanting needs to be done.

comment Is there an IP v4 address that can never be assigned?
You are making an extremely bizzare set of conditions - that this name has to be valid by DNS, but go to an IP that doesn't exist. Usually when people have a bizzare set of conditions, they're fixing a problem at the wrong network layer or are envisioning a much more complicated solution to a problem that has already been solved.

What about 300.300.300.300?

comment Switch sending DHCP packets to wrong VLAN
Try 'show int f0/17 switchport'. You also always want to set an administrative mode on switchports - either 'switchport mode trunk' or 'switchport mode access' depending on what you want. Never trust dynamic switchports.

If you're trying to do something like 'suspend service' on a hostname by redirecting it to an IP address that doesn't exist, that is possibly one of the most complicated and backwards ways I've heard of trying to accomplish this task. You could set the A to 0.0.0.0 I suppose.
