Yes, but be careful here : it unifies the mechanism to access
the data, but not the schema nor the semantics. For example
you still need special code to, say, create a new DNS host
(because it needs to know to create the forward and reverse
record); or special code to generate an NIS automount record.

But the benefits to having a single mechanism to 
read and write the data are certainly significant.
