Very nice idea. I haven't commited this part yet, I think it's best to
commit it together with nsd.conf.
Here is a start, while there is no precedent in nsd.conf, I believe we
usually put the the default commented into the conf file.
There is precedent to the contrary in unbound.conf, i.e.:
# Uncomment to synthesize NXDOMAINs from DNSSEC NSEC chains
diff --git etc/nsd.conf etc/nsd.conf
