This seam easy and I will add it maybe, the problem being that you
shadow any existing one this way and also that you must make sure the
server is installed in the final subnet, not pretty.

This is not easy, how do you know where to find forwarders? Not sure
trying to use the configured DNSs is a good idea (esp if you install on
a test network and then you move the server.
And I don't want to ask questions for now, we don;t support bind atm,
admin has to check it anyway.
