Yeah Otto you're right about that, and 1 hour is the typical case for one's own usage as described in the iphone debugging scenario.  Not everyone is guaranteed to get the update in 1 hour even with a 5 minute ttl because that can be ignored, but then again it's for development testing and it is just a one-time switch in the scenario provided (another mistake on my part.) - so even if it were 48 hours, not much to worry about there either.  

But the whole concept of pinholing your dmz for development is a unique scenario not available to the developer masses depending on their hardware and network provider.

Thanks for keeping me honest! :D

Just addressing this point. This is not entirely true, however I understand why you'd think so. Changing a DNS takes about an hour or so, possibly more depending on your TTL setting.

I wrote a couple articles on this a while back. Here's one:

The trick is that the "48-hour" you're describing really only applies to changing your nameservers. If you're just editing DNS entries, then your TTL setting determines the delay there.
