This sounds to me a lot like "I want to avoid the DNS-poisoning protection in pdns, or to take advantage of clients without them".   Any decent client will drop unsolicited records due to the risk of DNS poisoning, so there's no real reason to send them.  There's a good reason this for this behaviour.
