There is an API call to rectify a zone, so any automation / web front end
could do that as it's final operation when updating a zone, making it
transparent to the user.

On a related note, does anyone know of a good way to check whether a
zone is valid, or not? It's something I'd like to monitor, but I'm not sure
how best to do that.
