AFAIK there are no plans to drop LDAP backend support from BIND. So maybe
you should just consider to switch there.

I just wanted to add that according many testimonies, like: https://lists.isc.org/mailman/htdig/bind-users/2011-February/082814.html, BIND9 with LDAP over DLZ has a very low performance, making it unsuitable for production systems, which is not the case with PowerDNS.

So, it seems, PowerDNS with LDAP backend is the only truly viable solution in production, and PowerDNS is in risk of dropping maintenance of this backend!
