No, not unless your DNS server accepts GSS-TSIG updates, or you arrange
the 'nsupdate command' not to require them (eg provide a key file and
the right options).  Just be aware that while we originally intended
flexibility in this area, any you continue to find remain there
entirely by accident.  (We already have too many choices on DNS, we
need less not more).
