If this is that often, perhaps he should be doing his own secondary DNS.
Or you could set up an automated system (perhaps with a user-friendly WWW
interface?) that authenticates username/password pairs and makes
controlled changes. Dunno about you, but I wouldn't trust my DNS
configuration to very many of our customers, authenticated or no.
Even if you do allow others to make changes, there's no reason why superuser
