probably give the zone operator some protection against someone
duplicating the *entire* zone and doing something nefarious. Actually -
I think that right is already there in the case of a compiled complete
database, but such a notice would help preserve such right. but then
IANAL and South Africa != Germany. And I'm referring to the entire zone
(or a significant portion of it). --Calvin
