Well I did add another policy to my kasp.xml in order to test a 'speedy' policy. All of my zones have been part of the 'default' policy in kasp.xml, sofar.

Now I do not understand how one would modify the policy of one of my zones (XYZ) from 'default' to 'speedy'? 

According the ods-enforcer manual page only the following relevant options exist (if I am not mistaken):
| ods-enforcer zone list | add | delete

Does one use 'ods-enforcer zone add --zone XYZ --policy speedy' instead? 
(I didn't try that without fully understanding the implications, yet.)

I could achieve a modification via zonelist.xml (which has been empty before):
1) zonelist export
2) manually modify the policy of the XYZ zone entry
3) zonelist import

BUT, according https://wiki.opendnssec.org/display/DOCS20/zonelist.xml
| Its use is discouraged. 

So, how does one modify zone's policies the proper way?

Thanks and with kind regards,
