Also, why not just use a read-only lofs mount as your jail, with a writeable
filesystem mounted at the jail's /var/named (or wherever) to handle the
files named expects to write?

Combined with a nice configuration to run named as a non-root user on a
high port, and something like to
provide the access to port 53, and it seems you'd have a nice, simple, easy-to-
maintain (well, as easy to maintain as BIND gets) named setup.
