why does /etc/namedb link to /var?

Can anyone shed light on why /etc/namedb is a symlink to /var/named/etc/namedb?

It seems to me this is general configuration stuff which should be in /etc/namedb on the root partition, not on /var.  I thought /var was used for things like logs, process ids of running processes, etc.
