No doubt, making the DNS server authoritative for private zones is the
best, first case, and if everyone did it, there wouldn't be any AS112
traffic.  Unfortunately, not everyone can, so is there some additional
advice we can give them?  What can I tell the multinational corporation
that has a manageable set of network choke points, but very little
control over how protocols are used within individual enclaves?  Or the
super-paranoid  small enterprise that wants multiple layers to make sure
no internal addressing info leaked out at all?
