>                 URL:
>             Project: Directory ApacheDS
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>          Components: dns

>            Assignee: Enrique Rodriguez
>            Priority: Major
> Based on new understanding of RFC's 1034 and 1035 we can refactor the apache DNS schema
to eliminate a number of unnecessary attributes and make zone configuration more intuitive:
> o  remove name.  name is implicit in the relative DN (RFC 2247).
> o  remove type.  type is implicit in the objectClass.
> o  move class from MUST on abstract record type to MAY on SOA.  class will be determined
from the SOA or default to IN (RFC 1035 5.2).
> o  change TTL to MAY.  TTL will default to SOA MINIMUM.
> o  add MAY 'description'.
> o  separate OC's for apacheDnsReferralNameServer and apacheDnsNameServerRecord.  The
meaning of these name servers is fundamentally different.
> o  separate OC's for apacheDnsReferralAddress and apacheDnsAddressRecord.  The meaning
of these address records is fundamentally different.
> o  use domainComponents, CS.UCL.AC.UK maps to DC=CS,DC=UCL,DC=AC,DC=UK, according to
RFC 2247.
> o  Note:  ldap-common NamespaceTools.inferLdapName( ) will return a DN for
a zone.
