Forgive me if this is a stupid question.

I am curious that if BIND ever tried to make the DB file easier to
operate under pure text-based environment.
For example, allow something like following format inside zone file,

  $ORIGIN 1.0.0.0.3.f.8.0.3.1.4.8.8.7.d.f.ip6.arpa.
  48ff:fe35:d1bc         PTR     server.example.com.

And when load the zone file, automatically (internally) interpret it as
  c.b.1.d.5.3.e.f.f.f.8.4.1.0.0.0.3.f.8.0.3.1.4.8.8.7.d.f.ip6.arpa.
inside memory.
