Hi David,

Cloud DNS is not only possible, but desirable in many cases.  A large
anycasted provider can provide better latency and availability than most

If you're looking for a hosted DNS solution, most will accept NOTIFY
packets from a BIND instance.  If you're just looking to run a nameserver
hosted in EC2/Rackspace/etc., you can install whatever DNS server you
like--you're managing the box yourself.
