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.

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...
