I would like to see the reference to this, as these measurements  
might be outdated.

Besides I would like to refer you and other readers to recent numbers  
in http://www.ripe.net/ripe/docs/ripe-352.html#sec:memload where  
memory consumption of NSD and named are measured as part of an  
investigation of the effect of deploying DNSSEC at the RIPE NCC.

In Dutch we say "meten is weten". (To measure is to know).
