In fact, you can use wildcard records in PowerDNS. Unless you specify 
'wildcards=off' in the config file anyway. You do have to specify the 
name part as '*.domain.tld', of course (following convention with the 
rest of PowerDNS), but we have several customers who take advantage of 
the wildcard feature, and it works fine.
