Because I might not be able to control nor have input into 
local-private bind(s) and thus...
clients/nodes on private networks would query www/public 
bind and only then would learn of '' and then, 
via that delegation to my own binds, '' would 
be served to local-private networks.
- here is where 'views' come to mind, on my binds...
but to make it even more tricky - but some expert may still 
say, trivial - currently deployed binds of mine do not 
support "split-horizon"
the easiest way out of which I can think would be to have my 
binds to simply point to those private/local IPs - here I 
wonder, as a newbie has to, if that would make DNS protocols 
unhappy or perhaps I get kicked in the teeth right at start.
