Accessing RemoteApps externally with .local internal domain

I've been running around in circles for a while on this one.  I've been working with a client to migrate them to RemoteApps, but their internal domain is domain.local.  The problem this is creating is none of the internal names are publishable, so external clients cannot resolve names unless I deploy hosts file entries to them.  This causes a problem because a requirement for them is to go to a random lobby computer and be able to use RemoteApps from there.

I did find a section that allows you to reconfigure the URL used to access the RDWeb page, and that works, but as soon as you try to launch an application, it again tries to access the path it was shared with, which has to be the server name of which the exe runs on, which has .local.

Anyone have any ideas?
