Juju status output includes a field 'dns-name' or DNS, but doesn't resolve that to a name

Bug Description

When using Juju with Maas, the instance-id is an unintelligible string which is not really something folks use as a hostname. When working with hardware issues, we need to determine what applications run on which host, and to do so we have to either get the hostname from maas by feeding it the inst id, or by running 'hostname' on the machine.

The content of 'dns-name' is the IP address of the machine, rather than a name, even if reverse lookup works perfectly.

It would be extremely helpful for operators if the hostname of the machine were displayed in the output of 'juju status', either in the yaml/json output or preferably in the tabular output too.
