Come to think of it, we are actually using http://dnsmadeeasy.com/ for
the ACM.  It isn't that we can't run a BIND or djbdns server, we are
responsible for over fifty machines, but yanno, it's just easier.

A provider who focuses on DNS can make sure there is uber redundancy,
and can, as mentioned, keep a single point of failure from affecting
the zone's future edit-ability.

I definitely agree that it should be more difficult to get admin for
Zope.org DNS than to get a Zope.org account for publishing content /
filing bugs. ;)
