No.

Is failure okay in that case?

You really only need to know the maximum value and then start the
non-DT allocations from there.

Generally, nothing should be accessing the same DT value frequently.
It should get cached somewhere.

I don't really understand how domains are used so it's hard to provide
a recommendation here. Do domains even belong in the DT? This function
is just a weird mixture of data retrieval and allocation. I think you
need to separate it into 2 functions.
