I don't care about using the same file, I do care about clear config. If
there was a feature which allow to use different files with one
description of zone, I would be happy. But there isn't.

I wrote earlier and may repeat again. The feature for me is not using
the same file, the feature is having a clear and maitainable config. In
this case it means to have only one description for a zone.
