sub-domain views

Depends on your exact definition of those words. It's certainly possible 
to skip a domain level in your delegations, e.g. can 
be delegated from, in which case the intermediate level 
of the hierarchy -- -- does not exist as a zone in 
that view. It could, at the same time, be defined as a zone in some 
other view. So, technically would "belong" to one 
view, and its "parent", i.e., would "belong" to another.

But if you're asking whether some *undelegated* subdomain can be 
"rerouted" from one view to another, then the answer is no -- zones are 
attached to views in an all-or-nothing fashion. You can't attach part of 
a zone to one view and the remainder of the zone to another view...
