DNS is distributed.  The actions should be distributed as well.  Why 
should people contact dnsadm@ if they want to add hosts to 

Why minimize email traffic and have the the person in charge of 
nz.freebsd.org send site contact details to dnsadm@ for record 
keeping purposes.  It put the work where it should be.  In the 
region.  That frees up the dnsadm at .
