Actually, what I feel is slow now is adding zones without the --no-xml flag when running a large number of domains. What might be slow is lots of keys, but I have only been running lots of zones with SharedKeys. But I will try to look for slow queries. Maybe do the same operation without SharedKeys.

Anyway, you could just try to create lots of zones and turn on MySQL query logging, and find out what types of queries that are made during the lifetime of operations - and then do some benchmarking on those queries on a populated database.
