Andrew Sullivan was right to say that there is an advantage to having BULK
as an RR compared to the $GENERATE master file directive, because an RR
makes it easier to interoperate across multiple providers in a
multi-master DNS setup.

I guess a BULK that is just a standardized version of $GENERATE (with
multi-master-only online signing when there's an unfeasible number of
generated records) isn't a completely terrible idea, though it's a lot
less complicated than the current draft.

I'd still like to see lots more specific examples of how it could be used
other than for v6 reverse DNS.

Tony.
