If we switch away from Andrew managing this, we probably lose
ns.fysh.org as a DNS host too.

I can help out, primary or secondary.  nlns.globnix.net is in NL,
I can sort out secondaring with friends on US west coast and in the UK.

If Andrew wants to try again: I've had good luck with joker.com, based
in CH, taking multiple currencies and handling DNSSEC records and IPv6
glue records fine, with decent customer service back before those
statements were true (they added the items in manually and then fixed
their systems to support them properly).

As an alternative approach: for very simple DNS needs, exim.org is
currently using LuaDNS; there are some issues there from a DNS purity
standpoint, but it works well enough to have a DNS git repo on GitHub
which multiple people can commit to, and commits to master automatically
trigger LuaDNS to update the zone.  Reducing the bus-factor is nice.
