OTOH, if the requirement is "must have PTR" and/or "organisation fwd
domain name should show up in PTR RDATA" then wildcards have a place. And
yes, BIND loads and answers, as expected.

*. PTR a.node.on.vlan344.namn.se.

...will work just fine, for instance. I did it for a 200+ segment LAN
party, couple years ago. And as is usual with wildcards, if you do need
to insert a real record, it will take over just as expected.
