Features which would work well behind a GUI frontend exist, and more
are coming in BIND 9.11. See the rndc(8) manual and the various
commands it has.
The rndc *zone commands (addzone, delzone, modzone) will improve the
experience of running a master/slave group of nameservers, as will
the "catalog zones" feature which is in planning stages.

(over 19 years ago!)
Various commercial DNS appliance vendors have implemented GUI
frontends, but those are now within reach of mere mortals.
