The fact that people are using a package improperly does not make its
design wrong.  The package information is quite clear:

   The caching-nameserver package includes the configuration files
   which will make BIND, the DNS name server, act as a simple caching
   nameserver.  Many users on dialup connections use this package
   along with BIND for such a purpose.

   If you would like to set up a caching name server, you'll need to
   install the caching-nameserver package; you'll also need to install

Note the "simple caching nameserver" part.  Those using it for
something different are simply wrong.
