Understood.  I guess we all have our own perspective and priorities.

There are, however, several popular commercial DNS vendors I know
first hand which are offering their own proprietary solutions as
marketing features.

This coupled with our own customer requests leads me to believe the
issue is a lot blippier than one might think.  Even _this_ email
thread started with a real-world need seeking a solution.

Our proposed solution (I-D) is not IPv6 specific and would be a
standards based approach allowing the "intent" of generated DNS
records to be transferred regardless of vendor.  Think of it more
as an extension to the wonderful $GENERATE we all love and adore.

Just curious, is there a fundamental reason you have to oppose this
beyond simply the scale?
