Uhm I am defeated on this one :-)
But the nice thing is that the design I have in mind can cope with
either solutions so I don't care too much :-)

I'd like to make the default "domain" the one that defines the allocator
Is it ok a syntax like:


the allocator will be in the range 60001-500000

I'd like to tie this to the default domain to avoid wrong configurations
where we have overlapping ranges
