Isn't there a dns update command that comes with named?   I'd suggest
using that rather than editing the db file directly.   I agree with
you that that method is messy, although I will admit that that's what
I do too.

The long-term solution to this is to have lease database entries for
static clients as well as dynamic, but this won't be present in 3.0.
