So... is the effort to insist on using bind worth it?

It's fairly easily answered - if using bind is more effort and less
or equal functionality, clearly not.

I know.
But does bind have features that are important enough to keep using

I think only you yourself can answer that. You need to know your
requirements and whether they are best satisfied by dnsmasq or bind.
Personally speaking, I have had a working bind setup for years, it is
hardly any effort maintaining it, I have no plans to switch to
something else. I don't know dnsmasq at all, but to start with, if it
doesn't serve zones, it's no good to me.
