	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 through, what www.<> 
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.
