I have to ask why?  I mean, doing this is going to create SERIOUS management problems for you... at least it would for me...

I know but
When we add a machine to the domain will the machine name be added automaticaly to the ADS>Domain name >users>Domain admin > Members.

If i remove the machine name from that part will it be deleted from the machine too.

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

If you want to illustrate/test, DO NOT do it company wide - pick 10-20 machines and do it to them...

Problems I can see:
Unable to deploy software
Unable to manage clients remotely through Computer Management
Unable to run scripts remotely on the clients

Those are just the things that come to mind...
