Do you have a strategy how to detect broken records, older versions
have added?

Can we do some magic using 110 as magic?

git grep 110 source4/dns_server/
source4/dns_server/dns_utils.c: uint32_t dwSerial = 110;
source4/dns_server/pydns.c:     static const int serial = 110;
source4/dns_server/pydns.c:     static const int serial = 110;

And change that value in the fixing patchset?

I'd really like to avoid to force a manual cleanup of this
to administrators.

And we also have to make sure that we don't delete records
in existing setups, which where supposed to be static!
