some errors being security-related, which in the case of BIND servers 
used by MANY users is a very bad situation.

Furthermore, are there even any 'important' Windows primary servers, that 
serve the open internet or many users (authoritative or resolving) - but 
rather only serve closed/internal private or commercial interests?

If some entity is already wasting money on MS software and licenses and 
BIND is important to them, then they should also support development and 
pay for support just like they pay MS.

I do believe ISC should be more clear about the intended platforms for 
BIND. It's not a crime to not support one corporation's specific 
and different platform.
