feel free to re-use it however you like.

I actually deleted the SPF records from my example as being "not necessary for
a minimal zone".

So would I if I was ever in a situation where I had to beg for it. And some
ISPs will even fulfil such a request.

(and delegating a .in-addr.arpa zone for less than a /24 is moderately

possible. and moѕt who do know it's possible put it in the too much hassle
