To add customized text to the login related screens is no new idea but 
not supported yet. You could use the general announcement box which 
appears on the login screen: As Domain Coordinator go to Main Menu >> 
Announcements and my calendar

If you like you might think of directly adding the desired text to the file:

Don't forget to reload the web server to apply the changes:
/etc/init.d/httpd reload
(httpd, apache or apache2, depending on your distro)
