  (1) I assume there must be a clear and robust mechanism to enable keys
to change (since they all expire) without causing DNS outages ?

  What is the mechanism ? Or does one need to be created. I would assume
that the keys can both be valid for some overlapping period of time for
example - or that the older key can approve the newer key so the update
is automatic (less secure but way more robust than any hand required
method). Perhaps yum can play a role ?

  I cannot imagine a world where the world stops every time a key
updates ..

  (2) Why would one server prevent bind from working at all ?
