Unfortunately it's a bit more complex than that. We need to do DRS
replication of the DNS partitions with other DCs. That forces the ldap
DB format and schema that MS uses. We also need to use transactions to
make updates safe, and we need ACLs. That means a significant amount
of work on top of the current ldap backend for bind9.

It is certainly doable, but it's not trivial.

Cheers, Tridge
