Is DNS an Enterprise requirement ?

I have just discovered something quite interesting. I have been using Fedora Linux for some time now and I like it quite a lot ( Not as much as Gentoo). However I’m looking for a stable “Enterprise” platform to base my OSS solutions on. I installed RedHat Enterprise 4 and install bind and the utils. I then noticed that the quite usefull GUI “system-config-bind” has not been installed.

Ok so this tool is not exactly brilliant, However it is extremely useful when quickly administering your DNS server. The only way I can get this tool on Redhat Enterprise is to build from source or find an RPM which someone has kindly built. I find this frankly shocking. An Enterprise operating system without GUI DNS management tools, but you do get GUI DNS tools with your hacker/hobby fedora OS. How does this make sense?.
