Hehe - we had this discussion some time ago and then the conclusion was the
exact reverse, that people did not appreciate the DNS 'feature' of expiring
a domain in case of the master being unavailable.

For PowerDNS, implementing this requires actual work either in terms of
performing more SQL queries, or actually deleting a zone after a while.

Do people really care a lot?
