Adding my comment about *XFR from a different thread to this thread
too, for tracking.

Strictly speaking, that's not fully accurate.  I have plenty of zones
that fit in a single DNS/TCP message when sent over AXFR, and
DNS/HTTPS would cover the rest quite easily if left in its current
form.  Adding a restriction on message lengths would make this more
complicated.
