You can't, and no one is denying that as far as I can see. And I'd
actually consider this to be failing on the safe side.

But, given an entry in hosts.allow like this:

mountd: host.example.com 192.168.1.1

denying the ip 192.168.1.1 just because it does not have a hostname
associated with it would be just wrong.
