As Christophe explained, ejabberd 2.0.0 includes a new feature to
allow or deny S2S connections based in the domain name:

%% S2S whitelist or blacklist
%% Default s2s policy for undefined hosts.
{s2s_default_policy, allow}.

%% Allow or deny communication with specific servers.
{{s2s_host, "badhost.org"}, deny}.
{{s2s_host, "spammer.com"}, deny}.

However, this feature doesn't allow to define domain names using
regexp. So, this isn't possible (offtopic: this expression is not
valid, but anyway...):
{{s2s_host, "[0-9]+.[0-9]+.[0-9]+.[0-9]+"}, deny}.

Another proposal is to implement a new keyword:
{s2s_default_policy, allow_only_fqdn}.

In your case both proposals are good. The second one seems less
powerful, but easier to setup.

Are you interested in any of these?
