[Pdns-users] PowerDNS in an ISP environment

Quick question - is anyone on the list using PDNS in an ISP environment, especially for auth services ?
Have prepped PDNS to replace our Bind instances however management have raised concerns over moving away from the "industry standard", so have asked for more justification on the change in software. Already have some ideas but some "real world" use cases would really be the clincher.
Have spotted a new names on a couple of things published by Bert, and those of PlusNET but fpdns (yes, a little out of date signatures I acknowledge) seem to suggest no match (could be pdns 3) but mostly Bind. ie:
[root at ns1 ~]# fpdns -D plus.net
fingerprint (plus.net, 184.108.40.206): ISC BIND 9.2.3rc1 -- 9.4.0a4
fingerprint (plus.net, 220.127.116.11): ISC BIND 9.2.3rc1 -- 9.4.0a4
[root at ns1 ~]# fpdns -D register.com
fingerprint (register.com, 18.104.22.168): ISC BIND 9.2.3rc1 -- 9.4.0a4
fingerprint (register.com, 22.214.171.124): ISC BIND 9.2.3rc1 -- 9.4.0a4
fingerprint (register.com, 126.96.36.199): ISC BIND 9.2.3rc1 -- 9.4.0a4
[root at ns1 ~]# fpdns -D .tk
fingerprint (.tk, 188.8.131.52): ISC BIND 9.2.3rc1 -- 9.4.0a4
fingerprint (.tk, 184.108.40.206): ISC BIND 9.2.3rc1 -- 9.4.0a4
fingerprint (.tk, 220.127.116.11): ISC BIND 9.2.3rc1 -- 9.4.0a4
[root at ns1 ~]# fpdns -D .mn
fingerprint (.mn, 18.104.22.168): ISC BIND 9.2.3rc1 -- 9.4.0a4
fingerprint (.mn, 22.214.171.124): No match found
fingerprint (.mn, 126.96.36.199): ISC BIND 9.2.3rc1 -- 9.4.0a4
fingerprint (.mn, 188.8.131.52): ISC BIND 9.2.3rc1 -- 9.4.0a4
Have also done a few scans on some of the top hosts in the UK ISPA, some PDNS but mostly myDNS and/or bind.
This isn't to get into one server is better than another or individual choices, I like PDNS, more just looking for some use cases so I can get this over the line :)
