Yep.  These are the desktop boxes, which want to be able to talk to
the boxes on the internal network.

Yeah, it's globally more standard.  It was to show that it's not a
given every interface has dns/nis/etc.  These are the servers which
are connected to both networks equally.

Note btw that the internal network has a (friggin' fast) secondary NIS
server, and the configuration is broadcast.  So most of the times
these boxes use the NIS server on eth1 rather than eth0.

I'm not sure it doesn't, I'm not sure it does, but the orthogonality
between address and route is interesting.  These are the internal
boxes, with no gw access (they're not routable anyway).
