Fair warning to everyone (just FYI while we're talking about the name): 
The module is itself modular, with only "core" DNS recordtypes built-in 
- at the moment, that's A, CNAME and MX and will probably include at 
least SOA and NS too before a version 1 is released.  So we're 
potentially going to see modules like mod_domain_mx and mod_domain_txt 
or mod_domain_msad (for active directory extensions), etc. 

Also, do we want to change the internals to start using the new name or 
not - most notably the public bits of the API that are there to allow 
extensibility, like DNS_DECLARE(type), DNS_DECLARE_NONSTD(type) and 
DNS_DECLARE_DATA macros, etc?
