In the sense of a credible answer and not the ultimate show stopper:
If I have this right - in the US, the Federal Communications
Commission has a provision for unlisted telephone numbers. Telephone
companies are looking to make use of DNS. Although you can dial an
unlisted number, it isn't to be discoverable. In this situation, the
zone data is to remain private even though it is in DNS.
I know that in the prehistoric Intel 80286 age we felt that zone
transfers were free and open. Just because we said so then doesn't
make it so today. Requirements change.
