I still see d.in-addr-servers.arpa (both v4 and v6) being authoritative
for a (probably empty) zone 0.0.127.in-addr.arpa. That is, although they
report an NXDOMAIN for, they give the SOA record
for that zone in the authority section rather than one for in-addr.arpa,
and they do not include RRSIGs if DO is set.

Apart from that, I can't see anything wrong now.
