It adds a delay to squid deciding if to treat the lookup local
or not, which isn't really a good thing, because it has to do
that lookup for *each* URL requested, and some are going to take
longer to complete.

I prefer to treat things the same whenever possible - do you really
need to worry about your local cache users accessing your local
domains a lot? Any specific users are probably going to configure
their browsers to not use the cache for their domain(s).
