OpenDKIM can sign on any criteria you like and with any selector/domain
you like. SM suggested you use a SigningTable entry of "*", which is
exactly right for your (1) above, and for (2) pretty much all recipient
MTAs know by now that the signing domain doesn't have to match anything in
the message for basic DKIM operation.
