And yet, when using automatic serials and axfr replication, every change
creates notifies which trigger axfrs which fail until rectify is done.

And not just completely fail, but die part way through.

(I get caught by that every so often, if I haven't made any changes in
long enough that I forget at first that I have to do the rectify.  Not
every time, but every so often.)

I've spent some time looking into a set of functions (I use pgsql) for
making changes, which can do all of the necessary logic when adding,
removing or changing an RR, but I haven't yet compiled a full list of
what exactly is required for every case when dnssec is in use.  Has
anyone else?
