Really, the "zone" statement parser ought to be extended to allow a literal 
string in place of a hostname.  The current grammar rejects many perfectly 
valid domain names.

I know of nothing in RFC1034 which suggests that only letters, digits, 
dash, and underscore are valid in domain name labels.  I'd be curious as to 
exactly what text you think might be interpreted in this way.
