well... I don't see the added risk. Sure the client could have a security hole (unlikely, since it shouldn't listen to any ports, and only make a connection to the server when your ip changed), but apart from that?

Having a domain name pointing to your ip address is no worse than having just the ip address - after all, all major isp networks are know to the script kiddies by now, and once one knows what ISP you're using, it shouldn't be too difficult to find you again anyhow, by scanning a couple ten thousand addresses.
Plus, I believe reverse lookup (ie. ip to domain name) doesn't work with dynamic dns accounts - though I'm not 100% certain.

Just my 2 cents,

I was thinking about doing the same thing. I have a hardware firewal/router for my DSL so I can pick specific ports that I want to route through and specify which PC to route them to. That gives me the ability to make the connection as secure (or insecure) as I want. As long as you have some sort of firewall you should be OK. If you have broadband you have people scanning your ports for holes anyway. Every time I look at my log on my router I'm amazed and the number of port scans I see in there. I can't imagine a dynamic DNS service being much worse than that anyway.
