This was discussed on bind10-dev in the thread starting at

The idea is to define a set of points at which BIND-10 will call out to user-written code and provide a supported interface for it. For example, a user-written filter could be called when a query is received and accept or reject it according to logic based on business need.

Ideally the code would load at run-time, avoiding the need for the user to edit BIND source code directly. Such a scheme would also open the way for upgrades to BIND-10 without the need to rebuild the user code.
