We've got thousands of domains. Maybe I'm missing something, but
since most of them are very small (they only list the four NSes
pointing to ns1.skynet.be through ns4.skynet.be, what www.<doma.in>
resolves to, and what the MXes are), I don't see this as being much
less work than setting them up as full secondaries for all those
zones. And setting them up as secondaries would give us less
differences in configuration to deal with -- we could just copy our
existing secondary configuration to them for that part.

Yup, that's certainly another problem I'd like to see an answer for.
