	BIND (and the DNS as a whole) was never designed for the Dynamic 
DNS setups that people are now force-fitting into the situation. 
Some parts of the equations can be solved for these new variables, 
others can't be -- at least, not yet.

	It's one thing to understand the desires of the users and the 
people who are ignorant of the technical details, it's quite another 
to actually change the protocol itself (and the programs that serve 
it) to accommodate those desires, without causing irreparable harm.
