I (sysadmin hat on) have no objection to BIND phoning "home" and somehow
telling me it needs to be updated. In general. Depending on how it does it
and how much information it leaks (Sun Explorer style dumps shipped
outside, anyone? :)

I _do_ have an issue if BIND ever tries to auto update itself though, I
hope it never happens.
