I remember I had issues with the rather new RRs TLSA, SMIMEA ...

I fetch a signed zone from the name server with "dig axfr" and then test 
the zone with validns/ldns-verify-zone/dnssec-verify.

After the server was updated to bind 9.14 suddenly dig 9.9.5 faild to 
transfer the zone correctly. Then I updated dig to 9.14 and then 
dnssec-verify failed due to "unkown RRs".

So, every time a new RR is added and dig is updated, I have to update 
the other tools too.

Hence, my question to store the AXFR in generic format.
