we should have a common way of canonicalizing the zone name, so we always add a trailing dot if it is missing. this would make "" become "." and "xyzzy.se" become "xyzzy.se.".

now that 1.0.0 has been shipped, we also need to upgrade any existing data upon upgrade if we make this change.

OR we just use zone names without trailing dot but encode root as "." anyway.
