I have questions about the DNS hosting specifically... How many people 
out there really need DNS hosting who don't have it already? AUUG tried 
something like this a while ago, and ultimately there didn't seem to be 
any demand.

Perhaps some sort of light weight email survey would help measure 
demand? I'd be happy to help out with something like that if desired.

Also, what are the limits for such a service? It seems like it needs to 
be limited in some way... For example, is this just intended for 
secondary DNS? Could I use my LA DNS hosting to host a DNS based spam 
RBL? The two uses would place very different demands on the LA admin team.
