Views let you present the same zone two (or more?) different way. What
I want to do is make what are really two different zones look like
they are the same. So unless I am missing something (quite likely), I
don't think views will work.

What I think I need is to be able to have records that say "I don't
have that machine, try the rest of the universe." for certain machines
that look like they're in my zone but realyy aren't.
