We would have to re-implement the $GENERATE logic ourselves (and find a way
how to store it in LDAP).

It would complicate dynamic updates a lot so I would rather avoid implementing
this in bind-dyndb-ldap.

I would recommend to simply use ipa dnsrecord-add command in a for cycle to
add all the records.

ipa dnsrecord-generate command could generate set of LDAP objects too and it
would not require any changes in bind-dyndb-ldap... But I'm not sure if there
is a real benefit. IMHO it would be better to implement
Seed managed DNS domain from existing domain
