I personally like to keep the two separate so that changing one doesn't
somehow mess with the other. This philosophy goes way back to the
first time I decided to use my ISP's *free* email addresses. Being tied
to an ISP by a widely distributed email address made me stick with this
ISP for about 6 months longer then I would have otherwise (big jump in
price when original contract expired).
If you keep your DNS for a *bunch* of domains with your registrar, then
jumping ship when they start yanking you around gets a lot more
difficult. It's not impossible, just harder. With so many good
services out there that are cheap or free, I don't see why anyone
wouldn't just go with one of them. I second the EveryDNS.net vote.
