Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better.

This sounds like a reasonable request, but I have a few reservations:

1) Why is this configuration option not default upstream? Does this mean that they don't consider it ready for general default production use, and if this is the case, why should Ubuntu's position be different?

2) Debian doesn't carry this flag. Is it worth Ubuntu diverging from Debian here, or will Debian also be willing to carry this change? I'll ping a Debian bind9 maintainer on IRC after I post this and ask the question, but it would also make sense to file a bug in Debian if you want to do that; I don't see this configure option in Debian's source either.

3) Any security implications that I've not thought of? I'll ping an Ubuntu security team member on IRC after I post this.

4) We're past feature freeze for Trusty. Is this change worthy of an exception?
