To stay strictly on technical issues, I think you're constantly  
implying that the DNS servers for the zope.org zone that are listed  
by the registrar are not the same as the DNS servers the zone data  
itself contains. Can you explain why this discrepancy exists, or why  
it makes sense?

Nothing. I am describing the situation where you have a bind slave  
and you are configuring a slave zone for the first time. At that  
moment you don't have to manually pull the zone data, bind will  
magically fetch it. This was a hint for people who might want to set  
up a slave.
