To my understanding this should indeed read as "under the current policy".

We have agreed on that during the meetings. And I agree that we should
such text that to the wiki.

I was thinking of such an approach too during the Dublin meeting, but it
is just reflecting the pain to some other part. The signer uses the zone
name internally as the zone identifier, it can look up zones by the
string representation of a name, or the domain name itself. The latter
functionality should be adjusted to support views. It is doable, though
it is some more work then expected, and I am not sure about how the
enforcer-ng should be adapted.
