The odd thing is, I think Paul said past and future security notifications
have been and will be distributed via CERT (to non-bind-members).  I could
be wrong, but I don't think I've ever gotten initial notification of a
BIND security problem from CERT.  Heck...even this most recent one was
first publicized via nanog several days before the CERT notification.

Obviously, if the masses have to wait for CERT, we will be getting later
notification than in the past.
