Dear Danny,
My questions were basic questions of a basic user, i.e. what I either 
to answer or to solve for him, as part of a complete support of IDNA. 
I therefore understand that BINDInstall is the tool to start from, 
i.e. study and extend as per the new requirements I may perceive. And 
that a dedicated (IDNA/)BIND(/Windows) support solution is to be 
explored if it appears necessary, none existing yet.
