I think you missed the bit where I pointed out that the current
configuration works in all modern cases, both common and uncommon. The
point I tried to humorously make in my previous post was that the
current configuration will continue to work until such time as systems
are commonly built without any IPv4 at all. BIND does not even have a
configuration knob for "no IPv4" atm, nor should it, since it works
perfectly well on IPv6-only systems.
In short, there is no reason to make a change now, and long before there
is any reason to make such a change the underlying software will have
changed sufficiently to make the discussion moot.
As always, users with special needs beyond what the base BIND provides
are welcome to configure to their heart's content either with the
port(s) of BIND, or if that's not enough knobs for you you can always
build it yourself.
PS, pardon the humorless nature of this reply, as attempting to make my
point(s) with humor was apparently not very effective.
... and that's just a little bit of history repeating.
