Exchange 2010 Multiple Domains: Revisited

In a rare follow up to a previous post on the subject of multi-domain Exchange 2010 configurations, I have just come across the following information, which would have saved me an awful lot of time and effort if I’d known about it when I started (or, you know, it was clearly documented anywhere):
