	As John Cowan pointed out, HTTP would suffice as a low-level
	for access to zone tables across the net, but we also need to
	authoritative sources of up-to-date information; and specify
	of retrieved information with preference for the cached data up
to an 
	expiry date.  This requires representing the expiry date in the
	file.  Does the "zic" format permit a datestamp?

There are bytes "reserved for future use" at the front of the file.
