Ah, but here-in lies trouble.  You are becoming the data provider as 
soon as you do the signing on the data.  But I digress.

What about "rndc sign -force" that would cause a resigning (which is 
really what you are looking for) even if the data does not appear to the 
signing server to have changed.  That would maintain the integrity of 
the "source" data by not needing to change it at all and would also "do 
the right thing" with the serial number.
