Ha! Nice ;o)

Sorry - the point I was trying to make is that some people may find 
journalling beyond the AXFR size useful.

For example: it allows you to use named-journalprint as a primitive time 
machine to see old versions of the zone.

But you are correct, as a default the (binary) size of the zone would be 
a good default for value of max-journal-size.
