I still think a switch on/off (whatever the default) should be
considered because if anyone decides to depend on the (limited) trust
but trust all the same that DNSSEC provides then the fact that it falls
back to an untrusted mechanism when it can be easily DOS'd may lead to a
false sense of security which is worse than no security.
