Hmm, the easiest way from an applications point of view would be to 
create an entry for each server / homedir a user has access to, and 
then tell server applications to search the right scope.

Another possibility may be to extend homedirectories with a server 

dn: cn=hhoffmann,ou....
objectclass: ...
homedirectory: /home/hhoffman@test
or, maybe something like
homedirectory: test1:/export/home/hhoffman
or whatever..

You'll then have to modify each application to recognize the new 
syntax, might be a big hack, depending on how much software accesses 
the directory and specially that attribute.

IE brings the web to Unix...
Isn't that like Ronald McDonald brings religion to the Pope?
