I'm not sure it will work anyway, but you are welcome to try.  I think
we would need some more code to correctly accept TKEY requests in the
same way the internal DNS server accepts unauthenticated requests (write
them 'as system').

If you are able to help with the bind9 DLZ side of things, then
certainly, this might be practical.
