Best practices or known issues with split-dns

I should also clarify, before someone states it, that I don't WANT to
use split-dns, and my goal is to always migrate away from it. But there
are instances (acquisitions, routing constraints, etc.) where we are
stuck with split-dns, at least for a short period of time.

Subject: Best practices or known issues with split-dns

I'm trying to put together a list of best practices for use in my org
around the use of split-dns (implementation, operational, technical,
etc.) . Obviously, I'd rather not start from scratch, and since I'd only
be basing the doc on my experience, there may be things I miss as well.
Does anyone have, or know of, a similar doc? Even if I get a bunch of
pointers to several sites with individual items, I don't mind pulling
disparate sources together into a single doc.

If I find enough content I could make it generic enough to post publicly
as well for community consumption - maybe through (I'd be open
to suggestions on where to post).
