Assuming that you are running separate authoritative and recursive servers this would only be a problem when someone 
goes to a lame-delegated domain.

It is probably also good to note that it is a best practice to separate authoritative and recursive servers.

but this did cause me to update those trapper zone files and
bump the serials.  last time the serials had been bumped since
1995.  so you had the suggestion of a decade.  mahalo.

Ouch.  So you are going to punish the rest of the world for the mistakes
of a few people (however annoying it is).

/me just cannot imagine explaining this to my mother when she mis-types
some URL.

Granted that what your (former-) customers did was not any sort of best
practice, but I think your "solution" is a little too extreme.

Let's face it, there's no Hollow Earth, no robots, and
no 'mute rays.' And even if there were, waxed paper is
no defense.  I tried it.  Only tinfoil works.
