It's perfectly okay to list it as such, as long as
your dns and web server(s) are configured to handle
both (as other folks have mentioned).

While browsers have no trouble with
"product.domain.com," I'd strongly suggest having the
"www.product.domain.com" working as well, because
people are human and a percentage will assume there is
a "www" in front of everything (this opinion brought
to you by real-world experience :) )
