Oh, yes.  The work-around required with BIND 8 to accomplish the same 
thing is quite hideous, and this has been an eagerly anticpated feature,
for that reason.  There's even been a section in Craig Hunt's _DNS and
BIND_ book for years, talking about how it works and how handy it is,
but for the fact that it hasn't been actually implemented.
