What are you talking about?  Kevin was talking about an internal DNS
architecture based on internal root name servers that allowed you to
resolve both internal and Internet domain names.

Also, the model you describe, using zones of type forward, doesn't give you
iterative name resolution of internal domain names, which is part of what
Kevin was trying to achieve.
