Doug, I've watched all of these threads and NOBODY has said that this  
is ALWAYS a bad idea.  Some sites will benefit greatly by this change.

However, nearly everyone has said it's a bad idea to churn out on  
unsuspecting users.  Because you're not making life better for any of  
the big DNS site operators, we churn out our named configurations  
from databases and such.  You're just pushing it down to a bunch of  
desktop users and sysadmins of singular hosts running default configs  
(like randy was)

Please stop arguing over where any given single site benefits from  
the change.  That's not the concern.  Never was.
