This is a workaround that might work. Another workaround that came in my 
mind would be to use eg dig to transfer the zone and feed it into 
PowerDNS with zone2sql. But I trust the internal zone transfer 
capabilities pf PowerDNS much more than some external scripts. That why 
it would be nice to have this feature inside PowerDNS.

I already openend a ticket for the feature request.
