hostname restrictions

Am trying to add a fixed host with a hostname of 24 characters but the DHCP fixed hosts page only seems to allow a hostname of 15 characters. Wikipedia states "Hostnames are composed of series of labels concatenated with dots, as are all domain names.[1] For example, "" is a hostname. Each label must be between 1 and 63 characters long,[2] and the entire hostname (including the delimiting dots) has a maximum of 255 characters."

Is this therefore a bug in the firmware?
